Reminder and Talking Points

HCAC Meeting This Wednesday 11/17

We’re getting to the endgame for the Healthy California for All Commission. Not surprisingly, that means it’s time to follow the money.

At the upcoming Wednesday, November 17th meeting, the Commission will consider “financial sustainability under unified financing.” (RSVP now.)

The bottom line for sustainability is lower costs and guaranteed healthcare, so we have prepared talking points to make that case based on the Commission’s own studies and other recent policy analyses.

Inflation in healthcare has consistently been 2x the level of increase in the Consumer Price Index (CPI), and according to UC Berkeley economists Saez and Zucman, “for the middle class, health insurance is the biggest tax they pay.”

Media commentators (in outlets that rely upon healthcare industry advertising) often ask, “how can we afford Medicare for All?”

What virtually every healthcare financing study shows, Medicare for All is the only affordable approach.

Join us to make that case emailing the Commission or attending the Zoom online this Wednesday, November 17th.
