Naples forum raises question: Is healthcare a human right?

With more questions than answers on the Republican attempt to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, a health law forum Wednesday largely focused on what could happen in New York. The New York Health Act that passed the Assembly — and that now has wide support in the Senate — is a hot topic, given the uncertainty in Washington.

“Now we are a bit in limbo,” said Ann Ruflin, chief planning officer of Common Ground Health, formerly Finger Lakes Health Systems Agency.

Ruflin was one of three speakers at the event at Trinity Federated Church in Naples that drew several dozen people. Joining her to shed light on what is a complicated and politically charged issue were personal injury and malpractice attorney Christina Sonsire and Bonnie DeVinney, retired senior planner with the Finger Lakes Health Systems Agency.
