Have you or a loved one ever struggled to afford a big healthcare bill? Or skipped going to the doctor because you couldn't afford the potential bill? Do you have a high deductible health insurance plan that prevents you from seeking care? Or face expensive costs for necessary prescriptions? Learn how to transform your frustrating experiences with the private healthcare system into a powerful story!
Millions of New Yorkers are either uninsured or underinsured when it comes to healthcare. A punishing combination of expensive premiums, deductibles, co-pays, and limited networks prevents people from receiving even the most basic of care while insurance companies like Blue Cross Blue Shield made $440 million in profits in 2021. Based on data from the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development and the World Health Organization, the United States' healthcare system ranks dead last among 11 high-income countries.
That's why at Metro Justice, we're a part of the statewide Campaign for NY Health to pass the NY Health Act: a bill that will guarantee public, affordable, universal healthcare for all; this even includes vision, dental, mental health, and long-term care!
To win, we need to build a surge of grassroots momentum across the state. Sharing your healthcare story is a way to empower yourself and build public pressure, inspire others towards taking action, and build visibility for the campaign. Join us to meet others that struggle with healthcare access, share our healthcare horror stories, and create video testimonials to share so that we can reach more people and grow this movement!
Healthcare is a human right! Will you share your story with us? RSVP below!
