Providers Give Fair Share a Boost

The WFP's Fair Share for Health Care campaign got a boost yesterday when the Greater New York Hospital Association endorsed the proposed legislation. GNYHA, a trade association representing more than 250 not-for-profit hospitals and continuing care facilities, is considered one of the strongest voices for sound health care policy in the state. From the press release (no link available yet):

"Hospitals in the New York metropolitan area would welcome this important proposal to expand health insurance coverage to hardworking New Yorkers," said GNYHA Kenneth E. Raske. “The Fair Share for Health Care Act will level the playing field and create a more equitable system that will ensure more working New Yorkers have the health care coverage they need and deserve.”
