Wednesday, May 11 at 10 AM, Widener Hall, Presbyterian Church of Chestnut Hill, 8855 Germantown Avenue, Philadelphia. See the new documentary, FIXIT: Healthcare at the Tipping Point.
Two years in the making, FixIt is a new documentary that looks at the increasing cost of US health care from a business perspective and offers a surprising remedy – single payer health care. Richard Master, CEO of MCS Industries describes his own personal journey as a businessman trying to do the right thing for his employees and why, after talking with experts here and business leaders in other countries, he concludes that it is time for a new approach to health care (just in time for this year’s presidential election). Health care affects every business, every person in America. Filmed largely in Pennsylvania.
Businessman Richard Master got sick of double digit increases in his employee’s health insurance premiums and decided to investigate what was behind the rise in health care costs. His conclusion was that America needs a single payer, national health insurance system. His hour long documentary is a superb movie explaining the business case for single payer. If you promise to show the movie, you can get a copy and see the trailer at Fix It: Healthcare at the tipping point
