Stay tuned for our post election updates on the status of universal, single-payer reform in Colorado and nationally.
ColoradoCare, amendment #69, has been on the minds of many Colorado voters health care advocates during this election cycle. The Foundation is not a political advocacy organization, and we do not offer endorsements of any particular plan. The HCACF education and research committee has been working tirelessly throughout the past several months both to offer analysis of ColoradoCare and to retool and rethink some of the structure and financing models that will work best to ensure the successful implementation and administration of a publicly financed and administered health system that covers everyone. HCACF does, however, offer our most well researched analysis of health policy efforts, and we educate our neighbors, friends and colleagues about the issues related to the current health care system under the Affordable Care Act/Obamacare and the system documented to be the most efficient, cost effective and humane -- a public, universal, single-payer model.
OUR MISSION AND VALUES
The mission of the Health Care for All Colorado Foundation is to provide education and research regarding a single-payer, comprehensive health care system for all Coloradans
Comparing our preferred plan, single-payer, with ColoradoCare:
See Physicians for a National Health Program (PNHP) comments on ColoradoCare:
Vince Markovchick, MD, is the president of the HCACF board of directors. Dr. Markovchick spent many years as the head of the emergency department for Denver Health. He is also an active member of Physicians for a National Health Program, PNHP, and he speaks and writes extensively on waste, fraud and abuse in the health care system.
If you want the facts about single-payer reform, HCACF is the place to come.
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.
