Expanding Access to Health Care

Joe has fought to expand access to health care for more New Yorkers and to keep health care affordable for working families. He supported an expansion of EPIC, by increasing income eligibility to allow more seniors to qualify for the program.

Joe Addabbo also voted for historic legislation to rein in health costs by requiring insurance companies to receive prior approval from the state regulatory agency before increasing health care premiums. This change will not only control costs for working families, but will help reduce costs for small businesses, enabling companies to expand and add jobs.

Joe also supports state legislation to ban insurance companies from implementing costly "Tier 4" prescription drug pricing plans. And he has fought to mandate paid medical leave for new moms and those in need.
