Spotlight on a WNPJ member organization: WI- Physicians for a National Health Program

Too often, state and national medical societies stand in the way of health justice. WI-PNHP is a not-for-profit organization of health professionals focused on bringing Single Payer health care to the United States. Our Wisconsin chapter is part of a national PNHP organization, encouraging members from across the country to introduce single-payer resolutions and to organize colleagues in their societies.

Listen to this WORT-fm interview about "How single-payer health care can work....and should" - with Dr. Laurel Mark.

From the Facebook  of  WI -PNHP

"In the Opinion Video...nurses set the record straight about the root cause of the nursing crisis: chronic understaffing by profit-driven hospitals that predates the pandemic...They also tear down the common misconception that there’s a shortage of nurses. In fact, there are more qualified nurses today in America than ever before."

#Greed is the root of our broken #healthcare system.

Action Alert from the national PNHP organization:

Stop Direct Contracting Entities (DCEs) from taking over traditional Medicare

In 2020, the Trump Administration launched a new policy “experiment” designed to privatize traditional Medicare.

Under this model, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) could move more than 30 million traditional Medicare beneficiaries into mostly commercial, for-profit plans called Direct Contracting Entities (DCE) without the enrollees’ understanding or consent.

In ways similar to commercial Medicare Advantage plans, DCEs have the potential to interfere with care decisions and waste taxpayer money when compared with the efficiency of traditional Medicare.

The Biden Administration is moving the DCE program forward, threatening the future of Medicare as we know it.
