Statement by HANYS President Bea Grause on Governor Cuomo’s Emergency Regulations to Protect Healthcare for New Yorkers
ALBANY, N.Y. — “We applaud Governor Cuomo for taking this pre-emptive step to protect affordable, comprehensive care for all New Yorkers. Congress has advanced proposals that would weaken health insurance benefits and consumer protections. Governor Cuomo has rightly anticipated the very real possibility that this erosion could enter New York from Washington and from across state lines. HANYS commends the Governor for establishing these emergency regulations as a defensive bulwark against this erosion of healthcare in New York.”
The Healthcare Association of New York State (HANYS) is the only statewide hospital and continuing care association in New York State, representing 500 non-profit and public hospitals, nursing homes, home care agencies, and other healthcare organizations.
