All we need to organize people who have health insurance through a private carrier to support Medicare for All. . Tens of millions of people with private health insurance get harmed by their insurance company every year. Their insurance company forces them to pay too much through deductibles, premiums, co-pays, or out of network costs that are too high. Or their insurance company denies them care they need to get healthy. At the same time, the majority of people with private health insurance say they like it. Why? Because they haven't gotten hurt or sick enough to see the failings of the private health insurance model. People's Action and our member organizations from New Hampshire to Alabama are organizing people who have private health insurance to 1) get them immediate relief where they had anclaim denied illegitimately 2) build an expanded base for Medicare for All 3) show people with private insurance that it doesn't work - the companies aren't on their side. We are also working with allies to stop politicians from taking industry money. Learn about this strategy and how you can challenge the private health insurance companies at this Care Over Cost workshop!
