BPCLC Co-Chairs Release Letter Opposing Proposed Federal Anti-Abortion Rule Changes

Albany – State Senators Andrea Stewart-Cousins and Liz Krueger, and Assemblywoman Ellen Jaffee, Co-Chairs of the New York State Bipartisan Pro-Choice Legislative Caucus, today released a letter to U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Director Roger Severino, opposing proposed rule changes that would vastly expand the ability of healthcare providers and associated individuals to deny care to patients based on their personal beliefs. The proposed rules threaten to endanger the safety and well-being of a broad range of Americans seeking a variety of healthcare services. The full text of the letter can be read below, and is also available here.

“The fact that it is 2018 and yet we need to keep fighting to ensure women have access to emergency healthcare and preventative services is deeply troubling,” said Senate Democratic Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins. “The proposed changes drafted by the Trump Administration’s Department of Health and Human Services are simply unacceptable and put women’s lives and rights in danger. New York State has a responsibility to step up and voice our outrage with these proposals, and I am proud to join my BPCLC colleagues in this fight.”

“These proposed rules are an outrageous expansion of the Trump Administration’s war on women’s health and the freedom of a woman to make her own decisions about her life and her body,” said State Senator Liz Krueger. “The rules not only violate existing laws to protect patients, they also contravene the ethical obligation of healthcare providers to offer the best care based on patients’ needs. If these rules take effect, the result will be more stigmatization, injury, and death for women seeking reproductive healthcare.”

“In 2018 the discriminatory rules proposed by the Trump Administration put our patient-centered healthcare system and women’s very lives in danger, making it abundantly clear that the fight for women’s freedom and full equality is far from over,” said Assemblywoman Ellen Jaffee. “New York State has a long history of standing up for women’s rights and protecting individuals from discrimination. Today, I stand with my BPCLC colleagues in strong opposition to these outrageous proposals and vow to continue fighting for every woman’s fundamental right to make reproductive health care decisions that are best for her and her family.”

On January 26th, the Department of Health and Human services issued a proposed rule change that greatly expands the ability of individuals and entities to refuse care to patients based on their religious or moral beliefs. The rules allow for the denial of any part of a health care service, and offer an expansive definition of those who “assist in the performance” of those services, potentially including support staff, receptionists, or volunteers. In addition, under the proposed rules, providers refusing care are not required to offer any information or referrals related to obtaining care, and are not even required to inform patients that they are not being offered the full range of care. Further, the rules expand the definition of “health care entity” to include insurance plan sponsors and administrators, meaning employers could refuse to provide insurance to cover certain care, a clear violation of existing law.

The New York State Bipartisan Pro-Choice Legislative Caucus (BPCLC) was established in 2010, and includes members of both the State Senate and Assembly. The mission of the BPCLC is to protect reproductive rights across the state, and provide a voice for pro-choice state legislators in policy debates at both the state and national level. Specifically, the BPCLC works to protect access to quality reproductive health services, remove barriers to these services, ensure access to education about reproductive choices, and respond to any potential infringements to the legal right to reproductive healthcare in New York State.

Attention: Conscience NPRM, RIN 0945-ZA03

Dear Director Severino:

As the three Co-Chairs of the New York State Bipartisan Pro-Choice Legislative Caucus (BPCLC), with over 100 legislative members we write to oppose the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ proposed rule changes as outlined in the Protecting Statutory Conscience Rights in Health Care; Delegations of Authority, which appeared in the Federal Register (Vol. 83, No. 18) on January 26, 2018. The new rules promote discrimination, endanger women’s health and lives, and compromise the integrity of our healthcare system.

As State Legislators, we cannot support policies that would allow a broad range of covered entities to refuse preventive and emergency healthcare services to women, especially when there is no obligation to refer or ensure that services are provided elsewhere. A woman has the legal right to receive a prescription and have contraception dispensed; to schedule and have an abortion performed; and to receive treatment in cases of reproductive health emergencies. The proposed rule would open the door to more widespread discrimination against women’s reproductive health and rights, and that is simply unacceptable.

The proposed rule would also set a dangerous precedent by permitting refusal of emergency transportation and/or health care to women. When pregnancy threatens a woman’s life or health, and she does not have access to abortion, this can lead to future infertility, severe health complications, and even death. The maternal mortality rate in the United States is already significantly higher than in comparable countries, and would only increase under this rule.

Our healthcare system is built on patients entrusting their care to practitioners who are obligated, legally and ethically, to provide comprehensive, unbiased medical care. Patients trust that they will be fully informed and receive the care they require, or be referred if necessary. If conscientious objection in women’s healthcare becomes the rule instead of the exception, then a patient-centered healthcare system becomes practitioner-centered, riddled with the potential for medical neglect and violation of professional ethical standards. Our laws and policies must not support healthcare providers’ personal beliefs at the expense of women’s health and well-being.

We respectfully submit that Protecting Statutory Conscience Rights in Health Care; Delegations of Authority is excessively broad in scope, unnecessary due to existing state and federal laws, and would threaten the integrity of our healthcare system. As lawmakers who support policies that further women’s equality and women’s reproductive health and rights, we strongly oppose this Proposed Rule.

Thank you for the opportunity to provide comments and for your attention to this critical matter.

Please feel free to follow up with the BPCLC through the office of State Senator Liz Krueger at 212-490-9535, or at the address listed below.

Sincerely,

Gotham Gazette Op-Ed: 3 Ways New York Must Advance Reproductive Rights This Year

New York – Today, in an op-ed published in Gotham Gazette, Sen. Krueger urged the passage of three vital bills addressing reproductive rights and access: the Reproductive Health Act, the Comprehensive Contraception Coverage Act, and the Boss Bill.

3 Ways New York Must Advance Reproductive Rights This Year

On March 13, the New York State Assembly passed three critical bills regarding reproductive health and rights: the Reproductive Health Act (RHA), the “Boss Bill,” and the Comprehensive Contraception Coverage Act (CCCA). Unfortunately, the majority coalition in the State Senate continues to bottle these bills up in committee, as it has for years, preventing them from getting an up-or-down vote on the Senate floor. This obstruction simply cannot continue.

New Yorkers deserve modern laws to protect their deeply personal decisions about reproductive healthcare, and the time to act is now.

Why the urgency, you may ask, when New York is seen as a leader in protecting women’s reproductive rights, and Roe v. Wade continues to be the law of the land?

The simple answer is that there is a war on women’s reproductive rights in our country at the state and federal level, and it has significantly intensified during the Trump Administration. Conservative judges are being appointed to state and federal courts; funding is being redirected from Planned Parenthood to clinics that do not perform abortions, and from evidence-based sex education and pregnancy prevention programs to ineffective abstinence-only programs; laws and regulations seek to chip away at Roe v. Wade and restrict abortion access by creating unnecessary hurdles and criminalizing pregnancy; lack of coverage, high co-pays, and harmful regulations reduce access to contraception.

Even in New York, our reproductive health and rights are at risk because of our outdated and unconstitutional laws.

If a pregnant woman becomes critically ill after 20 weeks, or learns that the fetus is not viable, she must choose among terrible options: travel out of state to get an abortion (if her family can afford the hefty expense); carry to term and risk a dangerous labor to deliver a baby that is stillborn or able to survive only briefly, often in great pain; or possibly face criminal charges for getting the abortion in New York.

Current state law also fails to protect women and men from being fired or otherwise discriminated against by their employer for their reproductive healthcare decisions, whether making the decision to get an abortion, or simply choosing to use contraception. In addition, although access to contraceptive options is instrumental in reducing the number of unintended pregnancies, including teen pregnancies, and leads to families that are planned, safe, and healthy, many New Yorkers face barriers to contraceptive services due to lack of financial resources.

The RHA, the Boss Bill, and the CCCA address these pressing issues.

The existing New York State abortion law was enacted in 1970. It is not based on modern medical practices, and it does not guarantee the same constitutional protections as Roe v. Wade. Passing the Reproductive Health Act (S2796/A1748) would provide for abortion care after 20 weeks if a woman’s life or health is at risk, or if a fetus is not viable. Additionally, the RHA repeals outdated and unconstitutional criminal statutes banning abortion, and moves the regulation of abortion into the public health law, where it belongs, ensuring that New York State law treats abortion as health care and not a criminal act. Reproductive health care decisions should be made by a woman and her doctor – not by politicians or the government.

The Boss Bill (S3791/A566) closes a gap in current workplace anti-discrimination laws. Employees would not need to fear being the target of employer discrimination if they use contraception, get abortion care, or seek other reproductive health services.

The Comprehensive Contraception Coverage Act (S3668/A1378) requires insurance policies to provide coverage for all FDA-approved contraceptive products. Policies are also required to cover emergency contraception, voluntary sterilization procedures, patient education and counseling on contraception, follow-up services, and the provision of a 12-month supply of a contraceptive at one time, without a deductible, co-payment, or any other cost-sharing requirement.

At this critical time when women’s health and reproductive rights are under attack, New York must demonstrate bold leadership and stand up for women’s equality and healthy families. I urge my fellow New Yorkers to hold your Senators accountable. New York families have waited long enough – we can and must pass these bills.

NYN Media Op-Ed: Sustaining The Caregiving Workforce For New York’s Aging Future

New York – Today, in an op-ed published in New York Nonprofit Media, Senator Krueger and Christian González-Rivera for the Center for an Urban Future warn about the imending healthcare crisis caused be a rapidly aging population, and a growing shortage of home healthcare workers.

SUSTAINING THE CAREGIVING WORKFORCE FOR NEW YORK’S AGING FUTURE

New York City is facing an impending healthcare crisis. Left unaddressed, it will eventually affect almost every New Yorker. First, the good news: Thanks to medical advances and access to nutritious food, more people than ever are living longer, fuller lives.

Now, the bad news: An imminent shortage of home care workers and supportive services threatens to erode the quality of life, safety, and health for this record number of older New Yorkers and their families.

In New York City, the number of people over age 65 has passed the one million mark for the first time in history and 462,000 of those are over 75 years old. By 2040, one in five city residents will be an older adult. As the ranks of older New Yorkers grow, so will the need for quality, affordable long-term care to help them age well, in their homes, and with a high quality of life.

Today, 187,000 home health aides work in New York, making it the single largest occupation in the city. The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that this occupation will grow 38 percent over the next six years – almost three times the rate of job growth for the economy overall. Amid this rapid increase in demand, agencies that employ home care workers are struggling to hire and retain enough skilled home health aides to keep up.

A key factor in this growing worker shortage is fact that home health aides struggle to earn enough to support themselves and their families. Although the majority of home health aides in New York City work full time, three-quarters earn less than $30,000 per year. Because Medicaid funding for home care is not adequate and Medicare does not cover home care services on a long-term basis, home care agencies cannot afford to pay workers a living wage, let alone provide training to ensure quality care for clients and career advancement for workers.

Around 62 percent of New York’s home health aides have no more than a high school diploma. Their demanding work schedules, combined with a dearth of education and training options, means that most have no way to improve their employment situation. Moreover, many workers lack the fundamental tools they need to improve the quality of care they can provide, such as knowledge about common health conditions like diabetes, heart disease, mental illness, or cognitive impairment.

Failure to support long-term care workers is driving many out of the profession entirely –  exacerbating the worker shortages that already exist. This means that New York families increasingly find they must provide home care themselves, potentially forcing family members to sacrifice their own employment to serve as primary caregivers for older relatives. Additionally, worker shortages will increase pressure on families to institutionalize their older relatives sooner than they want or need to, denying them the ability to age in their own homes.

To meet the swelling demand for home health services we must  attract more people to the profession and reduce turnover. Achieving this will require adequate funding for long-term care, more and better training opportunities for workers, and giving aides the respect and authority they deserve as key professionals within a care team. The Paraprofessionals Healthcare Institute, as well as Caring Majority, a coalition of workers, family members, and provider organizations, have called on Governor Cuomo to allocate a small portion of the funding in his $175 million proposed Workforce Development Agency to create a Home Care Jobs Innovation Fund. This investment would help support training and education, and identify cost-effective and innovative programs for older adult care that can be replicated statewide. In addition, provider agencies should train home health aides so they can be included in their clients’ care teams, and allow them broader participation in daily care decisions.

Nearly every New Yorker will eventually need care, either for ourselves or for an older loved one. While both the public and the private sectors share responsibility for addressing the crisis of long-term care, government should take the lead to ensure that families have affordable, quality options for protecting the health and safety of older adults. Failure to do so means consigning families to a heartbreaking burden, and endangering the lives of some of the most vulnerable New Yorkers.

Senator Liz Krueger represents District 28 in the New York State Senate, where she is the ranking member of the Senate Finance Committee. Christian González-Rivera is senior researcher at the nonprofit Center for an Urban Future, a New York City-based think tank focused on expanding economic opportunity.

Statement From Senator Krueger On Assembly Passage Of Key Reproductive Rights Bills

Albany – State Senator Liz Krueger, Co-Chair of the Bipartisan Pro-Choice Legislative Caucus (BPCLC), issued the following statement today after the passage in the Assembly of the Reproductive Health Act (A1748/S2796), the Boss Bill (S3791/A566), and the Comprehensive Contraception Coverage Act (S3668/A1378). Senator Krueger is the prime Senate sponsor of the RHA and the Boss Bill, and a co-sponsor of the CCCA:

“Once again I commend my colleagues in the Assembly for making it clear that the government and employers have no business interfering in New Yorkers’ personal decisions about reproductive healthcare. Reproductive rights are under attack across the country, and soon we may not even be able to rely on the limited protections provided by Roe v Wade. Now is the time for New York to lead, with modern laws ensuring that decisions about reproductive health are the sole responsibility of a woman or a man and their medical providers. I call on the Senate Republican/IDC Coalition to bring these bills to the floor for a vote. The rights of New York State families should be fully protected by New York State laws.”

BACKGROUND:The Reproductive Health Act (RHA), (A1748/S2796) sponsored in the Assembly by Assm. Deborah Glick, would secure and protect access to abortion in New York State. Last updated in 1970, New York’s abortion law falls short of constitutional protections as defined by Roe v Wade in 1973, and does not reflect current medical practices. The RHA would explicitly allow for constitutionally-protected care late in pregnancy when a woman’s life or health is at risk, or a fetus is not viable. Currently, discrepancies between state and federal law often force critically ill pregnant women to leave the state in order to get the care they need. Additionally, the RHA repeals outdated and unconstitutional criminal statutes prohibiting abortion, and moves the regulation of abortion into the public health law. This ensures that New York State law treats abortion as health care, not a criminal act.

The Boss Bill, (S3791/A566), sponsored in the Assembly by Assm. Ellen Jaffee, would close a glaring loophole in New York’s existing workplace anti-discrimination laws. The bill would protect all workers, both men and women, from being discriminated against by their employers for their reproductive healthcare decisions or their use of the available range of reproductive care services, whether covered by insurance or otherwise. This would include, for example, women who have become pregnant and are accessing pregnancy-related healthcare services, regardless of their marital status or sexual orientation.

The Comprehensive Contraception Coverage Act (S3668/A1378), sponsored in the Assembly by Assm. Cahill, requires every applicable group or blanket insurance policy to provide coverage for all FDA-approved contraceptive drugs, devices, and other products, including all FDA-approved over-the-counter contraceptive drugs, devices, and products as prescribed or as otherwise authorized under state or federal law; requires applicable group or blanket policies to cover emergency contraception, voluntary sterilization procedures, patient education and counseling on contraception, and follow-up services related to the drugs, devices, products, and procedures covered; provides for the coverage of a 12-month supply of a contraceptive at one time; and prohibits applicable group or blanket policies from imposing a deductible, coinsurance, co-payment, or any other cost-sharing requirement on coverage provided.
