What is the
The Employer Alliance for Affordable Health Care is the largest, single-issue grassroots business coalition in New York State.
Our members know that state health insurance mandates cause health isurance premiums to rise at rates that have become unsustainable.
According to the Center for Health Care Research and Policy, New York is now the second costliest state for employer-sponsored health insurance with 2015 rates rising and more than three times the national rate.
Our members include more than 3,000 small business owners and sole proprietors who feel that affordable health insurance is a top business priority and they are willing to take a stand to make a difference.
Federal health care reform has not helped our cause. The Affordable Care Act redesigned the health care delivery system, but did not address the underlying issue of cost. Meanwhile, the Governor and New York Legislature continue their practice of "mandate at will," failing to look at the long-term consequences of their actions.
Health insurance premiums are expected to increase around the nation, with early indicators placing New York's average increase at around 17 percent.
Our strength is in our numbers. Membership is easy, and it's free.
