From our executive director, Donna Smith - http://www.healthnewscolorado.org/2014/12/10/opinion-staying-with-a-proven-benefit-as-aca-deadline-looms/. Smith said "Don't anyone mistake my purchase of insurance as in any way saying my support for single-payer is any less strong -- in fact, my support for an improved, expanded Medicare for all for life system grows stronger every day. I did need to make a decision on my insurance for next year, and I did so."
Our friends at Heath Care for All - Washington are pleased to announce a new 12 minute video by independent film maker Mark Hickling in conjunction with PHHP-Western Washington. It promotes the need for Single Payer reform and a state-based solution, the Washington Health Security Trust, waiting for Congress to act nationally.

The Health Care for All Colorado Foundation supports achieving health care justice and equality through an improved and expanded Medicare for all for life model. The Health Care for All Colorado Foundation provides education and research support for achievement of a truly universal, public, single-payer plan that covers everyone without financial barrier.
As we watch the beginnings of the implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), we know there will be many who are left without access to needed care or the coverage to secure that care. Current estimates are that even after ACA implementation, 400,000 Coloradans will remain uninsured. Many thousands more in Colorado will be underinsured and ill-prepared for an illness or injury as bare-bones policies that meet the minimum requirements of the new federal reform may not supply adequate coverage.
We invite you to be a part of our efforts.
