On Saturday, August 12, 2017, Kentuckians for Single Payer Health Care (KSPH) participated in the Louisville AIDS Walk and events designed to continue the struggle to end AIDs and to assure care for those with HIV. Hundreds attended the festivities in Iroquois Park. Children delighted in the face painting and dogs joined their owners in the walk to support. Harriette Seiler, Secretary of KSPH, (in the pink hat) distributed single payer flyers to everyone. Those with HIV are among the patients who face cost challenges in assuring the medications necessary for life. The KSPH flyer is below.
Forward to single payer health care
While health care reform helped some, many with chronic conditions still find essential care and drugs too costly or not on their insurers’ formulary.
Over 300 patient advocacy groups have protested to Health & Human Services that many are still facing barriers to care.
The way forward. A bill in Congress, HR 676, Expanded & Improved Medicare for All, will provide care for everyone under a single payer, publicly funded system. All medically necessary care including dental & drugs will be covered–and you choose your doctor.
No co-pays, no deductibles, no limited networks.
No worry about medical bills! Monies now going to corporate profits will be available for care.
We invite you to join this movement. Kentuckians for Single Payer Health Care meets 1st & 3rd Thursdays each month, 5:30 pm, Board Rm, Mezzanine, Louisville Free Public Library, 301 W. York.
KSPH offers to show the film “Fix It” or to give free presentations on single payer. Let us hear from you!
