Harlem United Supports Primary Care Investment Bill

Harlem United joined healthcare advocates from across New York State to send a letter to Governor Hochul, encouraging her to incorporate S6534A (Rivera)/A7230 (Gottfried) into her FY23 Executive Budget.

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
