MARYLAND ECONOMIC IMPACT STUDY
"Financing the Maryland Health Security Act"
By Gerald Friedman, Ph.D.
Highlights: 24.4% savings possible in current system.
Overall single-payer system in Maryland would save 15%.
Dr. Quentin Young, national coordinator of Physicians for a National Health Program, writes "Dr. Carol Paris, a distinguished psychiatrist and a valued colleague in the campaign for single-payer national health insurance, an improved Medicare for all, has written an elegant parody that is really quite serious: the mental impact of private, for-profit insurance companies on our nation's patients and providers/physicians."
Doctors and other advocates of a national single-payer health system - also known as an improved Medicare for All - directly confronted senators at a Senate Finance Committee “roundtable” on health reform today.
The Maryland chapter of PNHP has launched the ‘Healthcare is a Human Right! campaign in collaboration with Healthcare-Now! Maryland and United Workers. We seek a publicly funded healthcare system based on the human rights principles of universality, equity in access, equity in funding, accountability, transparency and the establishment of healthcare as a public good in other words single-payer.
By Larry Carson, The Baltimore Sun
The idea of a single-payer health care system was lost in the debate over the much-amended national health care reform passed by Congress last year, but three Howard County delegates are co-sponsors of legislation in this year’s General Assembly that seeks to bring the idea to fruition in the Free State.
MD PNHP is looking for speakers and writers to join this important cause.
