Harlem United Urges Legislators to Pass Primary Care Bill

Harlem United joined healthcare advocates from across New York State to send a letter to legislative leaders in Albany, encouraging them to support A7230-B (Gottfried) / S6534-C (Rivera).

The proposed legislation would convene a collaborative of expert stakeholders to: 

  • Define primary care for the purposes of measuring spending
  • Oversee the collection of spending data from all payers across New York State
  • Publish a report on current primary care spending
  • Provide recommendations to gradually increase the proportion of health care spending that goes to primary care across all payers in the state
