The Medical Society of the State of New York released an update regarding their President, Dr. Bonnie Litvack, MD, voicing support for the passage of A.10270 (Rozic)/S.8189 (Hoylman), which would expand New York’s anti-“price gouging” law to include “unconscionably excessive” prices charged by vendors. These charges are for essential medical supplies used by physicians every day in their practices, such as PPE and hand sanitizer. The bill passed the Senate and Assembly during its legislative session just this last week.

“Even though the COVID-19 acute crisis has begun to subside around the state, New York physicians still face enormous challenges as they work to fully reopen their practices to treat their patients,” said Litvack.
