NYSNA nurses, healthcare professionals, and supporters are sending a message to let hospital executives and lobbyists know that we will not accept any cuts to our healthcare!
We came to work and provided the best care to patients in the epicenter of the global COVID-19 pandemic. We worked short, we worked overtime, we got sick, and we put our families’ health in jeopardy. We are devoted to our profession and our patients. We need to be healthy to continue to work and care for our patients! We need the security of our NYSNA health benefits now more than ever. Any cut to NYSNA healthcare is unacceptable.
Our message to our employers is loud, strong and clear: Don’t mess with our benefits!

Send a message: Defend the NYSNA Plan Healthcare
The NYSNA Plan covers tens of thousands of nurses in New York state, and even more of their family members. The NYSNA Plan is a crown jewel of our union and sets the standard for private sector health insurance in New York. The Plan is governed equally by trustees from NYSNA and from the employers. The employer trustees are trying to look at plan changes that could raise costs for nurses or impose restrictions on usage and access to care. It is never acceptable to cut nurses’ healthcare, but to do it during an ongoing global pandemic is disgusting.
Send an email today to tell key boss trustees of the Plan: Don't mess with our benefits!

Don't mess with our benefits!” (Feel free to add any other personal message about what the NYSNA Plan health insurance has meant to you and your family).
