Join Dr. Friedman for his presentation on the first-ever economic impact study of how a universal, publicly financed single payer health care system will be funded in New York State. Based on the Gottfried/Perkins New York Health Act, this study provides the facts and figures we need to fight for a system that puts people over profits!
How will we pay for single payer? How much will it cost? Who will save money? How much savings can we expect? How will single payer impact jobs? How will this impact medical bankruptcies and out of pocket costs?
Contact your State Legislators and urge them to support the Gottfried/Perkins New York Health Act (A.5062/S.3525) to create a truly universal, single payer healthcare system in New York State.

Physicians for a National Health Program (PNHP) is a single issue organization advocating a universal, comprehensive single-payer national health program. PNHP has 19,000 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.
