American Cancer Society Speaks Out Against A395/S6385

Posted July, 11 2008 by arianne

As mentioned before, HCFANY is on record opposing a bad bill that would expand Healthy NY. Today, the American Cancer Society (ACS) issued its own letter urging that Governor Paterson disapprove the Healthy NY insurance bill, A395/S6385. In its letter, ACS stated that Healthy NY’s inadequate drug coverage makes it unpopular among businesses and their employees and offers a false insurance promise to the chronically ill.  ACS stressed that it fully supports efforts to help small businesses deal with their insurance difficulties, but that promoting inadequate insurance is simply the wrong way to go about it.
