National Health Care – Current Action
The League actively supported national universal health care.  With passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, the League will now monitor its implementation at both the state and national levels.

Toward that end the LWVNYS supports A5389/S2078 Gottfried/ Perkins establishing the
New York State Health Plan, a single payer plan.
