I am writing to you today to let you know about a new temporary statewide insurance option for uninsured legal residents who have medical conditions. This new plan, called the NY Bridge Plan, is New York’s version of the Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan that was created under federal health care reform. The NY Bridge Plan is a valuable product of health care reform in that it provides health insurance coverage at a lower price than other options currently available in the individual market. Through the NY Bridge Plan, premiums will be $362/month for residents of upstate counties and $421/month for residents of downstate counties. A list of upstate and downstate counties is available in the NY Bridge Plan brochure.
We have reached another tipping point in our country. Being now 52 years old I feel that I have legitimate perspective on our country and the direction that we are going. For 30 years I have run businesses here on Long Island and around the country. I have employed over 6000 employees and have interacted with both public and private companies. In my opinion the current administration and Congress have never been more out of touch with the national and international demands of a competitive business environment. People do vote with their conscience, but they vote with their pocketbook as well.
The public is angry and so am I.
