Health Care & Health Insurance Committee


Rising health care costs remain the number one concern among all Business Council members. The additional complications related to the implementation of federal health insurance reform and the development of New York's health exchanges makes it a particularly important time for the Business Council to continue its leadership role in protecting New York's employers and employees alike by diligently working to oppose both legislation and new taxes on health care coverage that would add any additional costs to the state's health care system and already overburdened employer provided coverage. The diversity of and the involvement of our health committee members helps carry the message that rising health care costs profoundly affect every business sector Sign up for the Tax Committeein the state. Employers as the primary payers of the health care system need to speak with one voice; the Business Council's health committee is that voice.
