Bill Hammond

Empire Center’s Director of Health Policy

Progressive politicians jumping on Bernie Sanders’ Medicare-for-all bandwagon should be careful what they wish for, especially if they represent New York.

As the Empire Center’s director of health policy, Bill Hammond tracks fast-moving developments in New York’s massive health care industry, with a focus on how decisions made in Albany and Washington affect the well-being of patients, providers, taxpayers and the state’s economy. Bill has authored reports critiquing a proposed state-run single-payer health care system, documenting Albany’s excessive reliance on health insurance taxes.
