State lawmakers later this month will hold a public hearing on the New York Health Act, a bill that would create a system of single-payer health care.

The hearing, to be led by Sen. Gustavo Rivera and Assemblyman Richard Gottfried, will be held on May 28 in Albany.

The hearing comes as lawmakers continues to assess the creation of a single-payer health care program, which supporters say will ultimately lead to a more cost-efficient delivery system for insurance.

The Realities of Single Payer, a coalition of business groups and labor unions opposed to the plan, have raised concerns with the legislation.

“Members of the Realities of Single Payer coalition look forward to the opportunity to provide testimony and participate in thoughtful and educated discussions about how best to ensure access to affordable healthcare for everyone without taking away patient choice, cutting jobs and increasing taxes. Forcing an expensive, one-size-fits-all, government-run system on all New Yorkers is the wrong approach,” the group said in a statement.

“We also encourage the Legislature to hold public hearings throughout the state to fully understand the impact of the legislation in all regions.”
