Message from The Health and Hospitals Municipal Labor Subcommittee and
Commission on the Public's Health System

We need you to support Fair Funding for
NYC Health + Hospitals

TELL Governor Cuomo to support fair distribution of Safety Net Funding.

Last year NYC Health + Hospitals (formerly known as Health and Hospitals
Corp.-HHC) received only $96 million out of a possible $3.5 BILLION in
funds that are supposed to go to care for costs of people on Medicaid and
people who are uninsured.

NYC Health + Hospitals sees 1.2 million patients without receiving its
fair share of funds. Changes have to be made by our Legislators on
short-changing and exclusion to access vital dollars. This is not about
Health + Hospitals. This is about the millions of New Yorkers who access
and need our public hospitals and other true safety-net providers.

What is Must!.

State legislation to change the current definition of a safety net hospital.

State legislation to target DSH funding meant for care of indigent
patients, especially those in high need and uninsured. Eliminate
restriction of NYC Health + Hospitals being last to receive funds.

Tell your elected officials to

1. Support amending Vital Access Funds for the NYC Health + Hospitals

2. Support and Amend Legislation A.9007-A/S6407-A of 2016 to adequately
fund NYC Health + Hospitals.

Governor Cuomo 518-474-8390 or toll free number at:

Twitter: Send a tweet to @NYGovCuomo and include the hashtag #NYGovCuomo

Send a Thank you to

Majority Leader Flanagan 518-455-2071

Assembly Speaker Heastie and the Assembly for their support!
Twitter: Send a tweet to @NYSA_Majority and include the hashtag #NYSAssembly

Let's stop the politics and games. We have in New York City, certain
private hospitals, who don't deserve the current amount of state funds
intended for true safety-net hospitals.

If you need more details, please feel free to email or call CPHS. Or check
out one of reports at


In solidarity,
