Timely Payment Bill (S3960/A2787) has Passed Both Houses

June 18, 2019

 

The NYS Council is VERY pleased to inform you that S3960/A2787 our Timely Payment bill has now passed both houses.  It moved to the Senate floor earlier today for a full house vote. The Assembly passed the bill several weeks ago.

 

We are very grateful to Assemblyman Gottfried and Rivera, our bill sponsors in the Assembly and Senate respectively for their support of this bill.

 

THANK YOU to all those who read our email last week that included the Memo In Opposition to our bill issued earlier this year by The Conference of Blue Cross Blue Shield Plans of New York, and who made calls to their Senate representatives pressing for passage despite this opposition.   The work that will be required to ensure the Governor signs the bill will be intense but we are grateful to everyone for the opportunity to take the next step and push for the Governor’s signature.  Congrats to all!
