Tens of millions of people remain uninsured or only partially insured.
Private health insurance companies are making recording breaking profits.
Pharmaceutical companies continue price gouging practices for life saving medications.
Physicians spend more time on paperwork than ever before, decreasing time devoted to patient care.
No wonder 2,500 physicians have endorsed A Physicians’ Proposal for National Health Insurance, proposing a publicly financed National Health Program that would fully cover medical care for all residents, while lowering costs by eliminating the profit-driven private insurance industry with its massive overhead. You can endorse too at www.pnhp.org/nhi.
Join PNHP for an evening with Dr. Gaffney to hear how this proposal can point the way to a policy that will restore the doctor-patient relationship and expand public health care in the United States, putting us in line with every other industrialized country.
