Nearly 100 people representing more than 40 organizations packed the room last night to talk about our plan to defend healthcare access in Washington state. Our next meeting is Wednesday, February 8 at 4pm at the Washington State Labor Council offices in Seattle. We’re ready for action!
Who opposes single payer? Guess.
Pass it on!
Let’s stop thinking about “solving the revenue cycle” and start thinking about caring for our community.
Why do we keep thinking that turning patients into “consumers” will save money and make care more accessible? In the end, it benefits healthcare corporations and not us, the patients. The only solution is to get profit OUT of the system.
Our Washington state primary caucuses are on March 26– a week from Saturday. Do you know where the candidates stand on health care? Here’s a handy guide: http://elitedaily.com/life/health-care-reform-candidates/1385295/
Studies show that the argument that patients will spend less on care when we can act more like “consumers” in a “marketplace” is just not true. Prices aren’t transparent. Our choices are limited by our insurance networks. And we can’t make good choices when our lives are on the line. We need a system that isn’t consumer-based, but is care-based. We need healthcare for all.
