This web site is a joint project of Kentuckians for Single Payer Health Care and Physicians for a National Health Program - Kentucky.
Kentuckians for Single Payer Healthcare
We are a coalition of individuals and organizations working to pass universal, single payer health insurance as embodied in the plan of the Physicians for a National Health Program and in HR 676, the Medicare for All legislation, sponsored by Congressman John Conyers.
We are working to build a movement in Kentucky strong enough to win the support of our elected representatives. We are open to state and city legislation that would help win our goals.
We are working to direct the anger and frustration engendered by an unjust health system into positive work to bring the humane changes we need. We work to bring both hope and health. We work to make what is morally right also politically possible.
We need you. All of us are in this together. We can build a more united, healthy, hopeful Kentucky.
Physicians for a National Health Program - Kentucky
Physicians for a National Health Program - Kentucky became an official chapter the national organization, PNHP, in December, 2004.
Although the state chapter is very young, there are at least 80 Kentucky physicians who have endorsed the Physicians' Plan for Single Payer National Health Insurance (www.PNHP.org). Nationally, PNHP is growing rapidly, from 12,000 to 13,000 in the past year. The majority of American physicians, as well as the American public, support a national health plan.
If, as a health professional, you believe that medicine's first priority is patients, and that physicians should play a major role in reforming the health system, endorse the Physician's Proposal at www.PNHP.org; join PNHP-Kentucky, and add your voice to the growing movement for real health care reform.
PNHP-KY meets quarterly. Meeting details will be posted here at www.kyhealthcare.org on our Kentucky Events page (accessible via the "News" menu above).
