End Medical Debt Workshop
NY’s nonprofit hospitals have filed over 4,800 liens against patient’s homes in just two years and our research shows that the patients whose wages are being garnished are low-wage workers, who work retail and service jobs. Medical debt disproportionately affects people of color in many counties throughout New York State. The End Medical Debt Campaign is committed to passing a transformative package of bills to end a health care provider’s ability to place a lien on a patient’s home or garnish a patient’s wages, ban facility fees for preventative care, and modernize New York State’s Health Law. Join our workshop to learn more about this crucial package of legislation and how you can help us #EndMedicalDebt.
