The healthcare legislation introduced this week will likely change significantly before it comes before the full House for a vote, and I will be monitoring the developments closely.
As of now, this legislation has not been reviewed by the Congressional Budget Office. I am eager to see a thorough review of the bill and its long term effects. I do have concerns with the legislation – including costs, impact on coverage, and reforms to Medicaid – which I have expressed to House Leadership and the Administration.
I had the opportunity this week to meet with healthcare providers from across all four counties of NY-24 on access to care and to hear their valuable perspectives on proposed reforms.
I will continue to review the policy as it takes shape and look forward to continuing to engage with constituents on this important issue.
