The Washington State Universal Health Care Work Group needs to know how Washingtonians are struggling to get the health care they need. We need stories from people who:
- have lost their health insurance after losing their jobs
- cannot afford health insurance
- have health insurance but can’t afford to use it or who have delayed treatment,
- are struggling to pay for long-term COVID complication
- own businesses and need relief in covering their employees
If you — or someone you know who lives in Washington might be willing to share their story, go to https://bit.ly/HCHRShareMyStory and we will follow up with the details and support if needed.
