Single Payer Universal Health Care!
May 24th - Albany
Last year the New York Health Act (A5062/S3525) – the state universal single-payer health care bill – passed the NYS Assembly in a historic vote with huge majority support. The bill is coming to vote again this year, and we need you to make sure it passes again with even more votes to show momentum is on our side. Join the rally and lobby day in Albany!
If passed, New York would lead the nation by creating the largest statewide universal single-payer health care system (like Medicare, but better!) in the country.
- Every New Yorker would receive quality health care and be able to choose their medical provider.
- No more bankruptcies due to medical debt.
- No more discrimination due to the kind of insurance you have.
- No more delays and denials from insurance companies.
Now is the time to add your voice. Join us in Albany on May 24th!
We need YOU to pass the bill in the State Assembly again this session and win more support in the Senate. Join us because healthcare is a human right!

Physicians for a National Health Program (PNHP) is a single issue organization advocating a universal, comprehensive single-payer national health program. PNHP has 20,000 members and 40 chapters across the United States.
Since 1987, we've advocated for reform in the U.S. health care system. We educate physicians and other health professionals about the benefits of a single-payer system--including fewer administrative costs and affording health insurance for the 50 million Americans who have none.
Our members and physician activists work toward a single-payer national health program in their communities. PNHP performs ground breaking research on the health crisis and the need for fundamental reform, coordinates speakers and forums, participates in town hall meetings and debates, contributes scholarly articles to peer-reviewed medical journals, and appears regularly on national television and news programs advocating for a single-payer system.
PNHP is the only national physician organization in the United States dedicated exclusively to implementing a single-payer national health program.
