We absolutely need Medicare-for-all. There is zero reason why we, as the so-called greatest nation on earth has to pay above and beyond all these other nations, but also cannot cover all our own people.
Seniors have Medicare, their healthcare is guarenteed. The poor have Medicaid, their healthcare is guaranteed. The middle class? We have nothing, and we pay through the nose for private insurance. Many have found help through the ACA, but it isn’t enough, and those that do not benefit from it are still hurting, and many are hurting worse.
We can do better. We MUST make this happen. In America, no one should die because they can’t afford a doctor. No one should suffer or die because they cannot afford treatment, or their insurance denied treatment.
No more networks. American should seek care whom whatever physicians they choose, limited by only the availability of that doctor to take on new patients, and referrals to that physician from a primary-care doctor. This middle-man approval/authorization bull needs to stop TODAY.
