The article reports on the possible ratification of a bill that would establish minimum requirements for hospital financial assistance policies by the New York Legislature. Hospital associations in the state supported the bill. The objective of the Citizen Action of New York is to ensure that medical cost will not affect medical care. Under the bill, patients at or below 300% of the federal poverty level can be charged no more than the higher of what Medicare, Medicaid or the highest volume commercial payer would have paid for the service.
