Ask Your Rep. to Attend Healthcare Financing Briefing on June 10th

    1. Petition by

      HEALTHCARE-NOW

Please ask your Representative to attend this important Congressional Briefing on financing expanded healthcare.

“How Do We Pay For It?”
Options for Financing Expanded Health Care
Single-Payer or a Public Option?

Wednesday, June 10
1:00 pm
2237 Rayburn House Office building

Open to the public

Health Reform is moving through Congress at a rapid pace. But a critical question remains unanswered: How will we pay for expanded coverage?

Not all financing proposals are created equal. Academic research and international experience has shown that it is possible to expand coverage and achieve universal health care while lowering and controlling costs, if reform is done right.

This briefing for policymakers, staff, and the public will present an overview of health financing options and explore the implications of different financing arrangements on patient access, cost control and system sustainability. Emphasis will be given to a comparison between public-private schemes and a single-payer national model.
