About Health Care for All Colorado

Are you ready for the launch of an incredible year of educating and advocating for health care justice in Colorado?

We are.  One single standard of high quality care for all without financial barrier -- single-payer, improved and expanded Medicare for all for life.  The reality of health care reform for Colorado and the nation.

Health Care for All Colorado (HCAC) is a nonprofit organization in Colorado working to:

  • inform Coloradans about advantages of the (public) single-payer system of financing health care,
     
  • create a coalition that will develop strategies for achieving comprehensive, affordable and high quality health care for all Coloradans, and
     
  • build a grassroots movement that will campaign for the single-payer system in Colorado, including work to support citizens ballot initiative for 2014 supporting health care as a human right and a public good in Colorado.

Our sister organization, The Health Care for All Colorado Foundation, is a 501(c)(3) and works to educate Coloradans about single-payer health care and also supports the Colorado chapter of Physicians for a National Health Program (PNHP).

    I think the ACA is a great start, but I am unemployed and have been w/o work for five years. I am 56 and caring for an infirmed family member since 2007. Since there are no children in the house, applying for Medicaid is out of the question. Paying into Medicare so everyone is covered is a great idea but it should no longer have “parts”. That I think, has only made it less effective.

    There’s an amazingly simple fix for Health Insurance in the US:

    Set a price for ANYONE to buy into Medicare……it would shore up this program and at the same time, help those who need affordable healthcare!!! In no time, a majority of Americans would choose this plan……and the Right Wing can keep their own insurance and avoid SOCIALISM!!!

    Persevere!! Medicare and Socxial Security both took years to pass. We need a rational, single payer plan for the US. Senators have socialized medicine, and while a system like the German model does not, IT DOES cover everybody! We would save $BILLIONS/year and prevent thousands of medical expense caused bankruptcies if we used a sensible model instead of the half-assed hodge podge we have now.

    Don’t want health care reform ? It doesn’t affect you anyway.

    Well my right leg is numb and ins. won’t pay for my surgery and since I’m powerless to do anything I’m just going to get in the car and drive that 3 ton weapon all over town anyway.

    Honestly, do you really think 2 milliion people would leave Colorado? A more important question to ask following your line of reasoning is why would 2 million people leave Colorado? An epidemic? Rampant pollution? And, even in such an extreme example, why wouldn’t a premium adjustment not be acceptable. Right now, you have a kind of national socialism where individuals tie their welfare to a corporation in order to have their health care expenses subsidized…

    About fifteen years ago our resort company pioneered COBRA bridging for its seasonal employees, many of whom represent the spine and soul of the winter sports business. Prior to that, many of us went without medical health insurance until the company could pick us up when the winter season came around again. A few years ago, the company rolled back this benefit until it costs far more now [about double] to bridge than it does to go outside and break down the family coverage to find what is economical. When I asked someone in HR why this important benefit had been rolled back, the one line answer I got was, “Obamacare.” That’s nonsense. While not perfect, the Affordable Healthcare law is an important step in breaking the stranglehold insurance companies have over our health care and health insurance system. Why, for example, is it in the public’s interest for insurance companies to be exempt from federal anti-trust laws? The answer can only be, it isn’t. It’s in their interest and that must stop. They can’t have it both ways, claiming a free and competitive marketplace is the American way toward a solution, then rig the system in their favor. Let them compete with the public. In Colorado, if five million people got together and each paid a level premium for universal health insurance coverage, I would bet dollars to donuts we’d soon have a healthy and functioning system that we could all be proud of and would be a model for the rest of our nation.
