No Health Insurance Mega Mergers - Healthcare is a Right!

This petition had 2,471 supporters

The country's five largest for-profit health insurers are trying to merge into three mega corporations, creating an oligopoly that will drive up premiums for patients and employers, cut payments to doctors, and pocket the difference as profits.

The health insurance industry is a national embarrassment that is costing patients their income and sometimes their lives. High deductibles and limited networks are becoming the norm, making healthcare inaccessible even for the insured.

Tell Attorney General Loretta Lynch to block the health insurance mergers, since healthcare is a right and shouldn't be controlled by "too big to fail" insurance profiteers.

All of the powers that make single-payer healthcare so effective - the ability to negotiate low prices for drugs and medical devices, and set fair rates for providers - are deadly in the hands of for-profit insurers, who pocket savings instead of passing them along to patients, and squeeze providers until the quality of care plummets.

Join us in telling the Justice Department: YES to single-payer healthcare, NO to for-profit oligopoly.
