Governor Cuomo Announces Impact of American Health Care Act

"Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced a Department of Health analysis of the House Republican's American Health Care Act has confirmed that the proposed legislation would put the health care coverage of more than 1 million New Yorkers in significant jeopardy." As reported by the Offical Office of Gov. Cuomo

"Statement from Governor Cuomo:"

" 'Health care is a human right, not a luxury. After seven years of progress under the Affordable Care Act, the Republican Congress has proposed an inadequate, ill-conceived and unacceptable plan that places the coverage of more than 1 million New Yorkers in jeopardy and, once fully phased in, would shift more than $2.4 billion in costs onto taxpayers and hospitals each year.' "

"Health care experts across the Country have rejected the Republican plan outright citing the devastating impact on patients and providers. The AARP says it will weaken Medicare and hike premiums for everyone over 50. Millions of seniors could lose home care and nursing home coverage. Hospital leaders say staffing and services will be cut.
