In the midst of the COVID-19 epidemic, healthcare workers continue caring for their patients in hospitals, in clinics, by phone calls and via phone conferencing. Not everyone is getting paid for their bravery, yet they never cease taking care of patients. Hospitals need money to keep their doors open so they can continue to provide quality care, yet this pandemic is causing them to lose a significant amount of money. Dr. Robbie Goldstein believes that a Medicare for All system is the answer.
"Moving towards a Medicare for All healthcare system will not just stem the financial losses that hospitals are now experiencing, but will ensure that we are prioritizing care and equity in our healthcare system." Robbie Goldstein, MD, PhD.
