Legislative Position Papers

The New York Health Plan Association (HPA) offers its views through Legislative Position Papers ”memos of support or opposition” on various health care topics and pending legislation related to health care and health insurance.

You may search HPA's legislative positions by topic, bill number, or by entering a key word in the search box. It is possible you may not find a legislative update on a particular issue as HPA does not comment on every bill and every topic.
