Now that the celebrations are winding down from last months Supreme Court decision to uphold the health reform law (see above video), it’s time to get down to the nitty-gritty of ACA implementation.
New York has pretty much been moving full steam ahead for the past year or so [you can always check and see what the State is up to by going to the State health reform implementation website: http://www.healthcarereform.ny.gov/]. This means that if you have any kind of opinion on what you want health reform to look like in New York, particularly with the new Health Insurance Exchange, NOW is the time to speak up!
HCFANY is helping to get the preferences and opinions of everyday New Yorkers to the policymakers who are working on these issues through a statewide “listening tour” that was launched earlier this month. To do this, HCFANY advocates will be going out around the state and surveying folks on the different aspects of health reform implementation. These surveys will be done both one-on-one and in a group setting. To find out more about any listening tour events in your area, please contact Mark Hannay at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For downstate folks in the NYC area, there are currently two events coming up next week, one in Queens and one in the Westchester-Putnam area. For more information on how to attend either of these group events, click on the links below.
