You're Invited to PNHP-NY Metro's October 2019 Forum:
Would Medicare for Some Lead to Medicare for All?
Why half-way measures won’t work.
Tuesday, October 15, from 7:30 - 9:00 PM
Mt. Sinai Beth Israel’s Phillips Ambulatory Care Center, 10 Union Square East @ E. 14th Street, 2nd Floor Auditorium, Manhattan
All PNHP-NY Metro forums are FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC and WHEELCHAIR-ACCESSIBLE
The political season is underway. Health care is the leading issue, and single-payer Medicare for All is dominating the discussion. However, while agreeing that single payer is the best way to guarantee access to high-quality affordable care, some candidates see it as only “aspirational” and claim we should start with a plan that only offers a form of Medicare as a “choice”.
Could we start with “Medicare for Some” and still arrive at the goal of universal comprehensive access to care with no financial barriers? This forum will discuss these incremental proposals and explain, not only why they will not work in practice, but how supporting them plays into the hands of the health insurance industry.
