The conversation surrounding affordable health care continues in the Capital Region as a few people today had the chance to sit down with Congressman Paul Tonko to discuss solutions and improvements to the system.
The sit down included medical providers, health care experts and families who've struggled with the cost of care. Among them was Scott Desnoyer whose son, Danny took his own life in April.
Danny was denied his anti-depression medication because of an outstanding bill of just $20. That’s now driving his father take action and call for medicare for all
“These laws are set up on purpose,” said Scott Desnoyer. “They are done on purpose to make companies’ profits. They’ll save one month prescription; Danny paid his $20 on the phone that day I got the notice of the reinstatement, three weeks after he was dead."
Desnoyers tells us he is now working to organize a rally in Washington D.C.
