The Health Insurance Game: Why the health  system is broken
What Single-Payer Advocates Stand For

The U.S. spends about twice as much on health care per person compared to all other developed countries. Yet our life expectancy is lower, our infant mortality higher, and our overall health poorer. More than 45,000 Americans die each year because they lack health insurance. Currently, 31% of every healthcare dollar is spent on costs that have nothing to do with health care. We strongly believe that it is morally wrong to allow other Americans to suffer or die because they cannot afford to pay for health care. 

Single payer, an improved "Medicare for All", is publicly funded and privately delivered health care. It is a system in which a single public or quasi-public agency organizes health financing, but delivery of care remains largely private. This is similar to how Medicare works in this country. Doctors are in private practice and are paid from government funds. Patients are free to choose their health care practitioner, hospital or clinic. 

Everything can be done more efficiently and at less cost without for-profit health insurance companies. Over 90% of Americans would pay far less with a single payer system. Estimates are that we could save $592 billion per year just on the reduction in administrative costs that come with single-payer systems. That's more than enough to provide comprehensive health care to everyone without paying any more into health care than we already do.  Think these savings are unrealistic?  Germany had a surplus of $4 billion euros ($5.4 billion dollars) in 2011 with their national health program.  These are hard facts.  Learn more about the Single Payer Movement!
Medicare Pays for More than Health Care for the Elderly. It pays for

   The sickest Americans:  the elderly and the disabled

   Most medical residencies - thus educating our future physicians!

   For-profit health insurance companies do NOT pay for any of this.

Announcing HR 3421 and S 1655: Medicare for All Act

The Medicare for All Act of 2023, was introduced in the House by Representatives Pramila Jayapal (WA-07) and Debbie Dingell (MI-12) and in the Senate by Bernie Sanders. This bill replaces previous single-payer proposals.

Medicare would be expanded to provide comprehensive benefits to every person in the United States. This includes primary care, vision, dental, prescription drugs, mental health, substance abuse, long-term services and supports, reproductive health care, and more. The Medicare for All Act also includes universal coverage of long-term care with no cost-sharing for older Americans and individuals with disabilities, and prioritizes home and community-based care over institutional care. Additionally, patients have the freedom to choose the doctors, hospitals, and other providers they wish to see without worrying about whether a provider is in-network. 

And because the delivery of healthcare remains largely in the hands of private providers, patients will not notice much of a difference in their care when they go to their doctor or hospital.  ​The two major differences patients will notice is that they can see any doctor they want or go to any hospital they want. They will not have co-pays or deductibles to pay at the time they need healthcare. No more in-network or out of network providers or surprise medical bills.

Now the US ranks last behind every other industrialized democratic republic in quality on population measures of health care but spends twice the money per person. We are breaking the bank while people are dying of preventable causes. We must join the modern world and offer universal national healthcare to our people. We would pay less but get more!
