Washington Physicians for Social Responsibility and Whole Washington are teaming up for some Town Halls along with Undue medical Debt (pka RIP Medical Debt). We are visiting every corner of the state to create spaces for open dialog about the failures of the current for-profit system, to solicit stories from those impacted by the lack of adequate nurse staffing, hospital and provider closures, challenges of navigating insurance coverage and denials, or surprise bills and financial debt. This is a non-partisan, educational event – open to the public. WPSR will be sharing their Demand Access program, Undue Medical Debt wants to raise enough money to buy back 1 million dollars in medical debt from Washingtonians. And Whole Washington will be present to discuss our Washington Health Trust. We’ll end with Q & A from you, the audience. Everyone has a story and we want to hear yours.

We believe we can do better by establishing the Washington Health Trust and designing a nonprofit system that works for patients and providers, without the corrupting influence of for-profit insurance companies. We believe unions, small businesses and our communities will benefit greatly by disconnecting healthcare from employment and ensuring healthy families, Longer and more productive lives and a healthy workforce.
