Raia Appointed To Legislative Council On Health Care Financing
Member of Health Committee, Raia will represent Assembly Minority on council
December 23, 2009

Assemblyman Andrew Raia (R,I,C-East Northport) today announced his appointment to the Legislative Council on Health Care Financing, a bipartisan panel established to examine, study and develop a new system of financing general hospitals with an emphasis on inpatient care. The Council continues to work with the Legislature on a variety of health-related reforms and will evaluate the development of New York’s Health Care Reform Act, a hospital-reimbursement initiative, in 2010. The Minority Leader of the Assembly, Assemblyman Brian Kolb, made the announcement in a December 16 letter addressed to Assemblyman Raia at his district office.

“I am happy to accept this very generous nomination, and I would like to thank Assembly Minority Leader Kolb for appointing me to the Legislative Council on Health Care Financing,” said Raia. “In my role on the Assembly Health Committee, I remain committed to reforming the Empire State’s health care system, making it more results-driven, patient-centered, and capable of providing quality, affordable care for all New Yorkers. I intend to bring this emphasis on cost-effectiveness and choice to my role as Assembly Minority representative to the Legislative Council on Health Care Financing.”
