Sign the petition: NYS: Out of Network Benefits Are Essential to Mental Health

Sign the petition: NYS: Out of Network Benefits Are Essential to Mental Health

NYS is about to vote on including or eliminating Out Of Network benefits on the NYS of Health insurance exchange policies. This will directlyaffect patients in Psychotherapy, making it impossible for thousands of patients to pay for therapy without Out-of -Network benefits, interrupting their therapeutic relationship in the middle of treatment. This is a danger to their well-being.

Sign to insist that Out of Network benefits are a required option on the NYS of Health website policies.

That’s why I signed a petition to The New York State House, The New York State Senate, and Governor Andrew Cuomo, which says:

“Stop NYS of Health from threatening NYS citizens’ wellbeing and interfering with a patient’s ability to continue treatment with their psychotherapist of choice! Out of Network benefits are an essential option for the mental health of NYers.”
