Single Payer Healthcare
Support the Fight for Healthcare for All
Join us to tell Speaker Rendon to say NO to big-money lobbyists and YES to SB 562
In California, Anthony Rendon, not Donald Trump, is blocking your right to healthcare!
While Trump was attempting to take away our healthcare this summer, California Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon killed SB 562, the Healthy California Act. SB 562 would have started the process of creating a single-payer healthcare for all system in the State of California.
Why We Need SB 562
Everybody In, Nobody Out!
SB 562 would create the Healthy California program. The program would be open for enrollment for all Californians, regardless of age, income, immigration status, or prior health conditions.
Less Money for Better Health Coverage
California currently spends $368.5 billion in public and private payments for healthcare. Under the Healthy California Act, total spending would be reduced by nearly $40 billion - while guaranteeing coverage for everyone. This savings is possible by eliminating administrative overhead and negotiating lower drug prices on behalf of the entire state. The high price of healthcare is driven by lobbyists and multi-million dollar executive pay, not quality of care. The United States is one of the only industrialized nations in the world without single-payer, and pays more for some of the worst healthcare.
We deserve better!
Complete Coverage with no Copays, Deductibles, or Referrals
Under SB 562, all Californians will be allowed to join the Healthy California program - without paying a premium or receiving a monthly bill for being enrolled! The benefits of the Healthy California Act include preventative care, emergency care and transportation, pregnancy care, dental, vision, prescriptions, hospice, mental health care, substance abuse treatment, and more.
ALL healthcare providers will be eligible to enroll in the Healthy California Act, and members may see any provider - without a referral, copay, or deductible payment for services.
Protecting and Improving Medicare, Medicaid, and Obamacare/ Affordable Care Act
All Californians currently enrolled through Medicare, Medicaid, or an Obamacare / Affordable Care Act insurance program will be eligible to enroll in the Healthy California program - which will meet or exceed all coverage requirements. Healthy California will build upon the Affordable Care Act.
