Organizing for Single-Payer Health Care in the Philadelphia Region
Health Care for All Philadelphia is a coalition of health professionals and activists dedicated to achieving a publicly financed, single payer health plan that provides one standard of cost-effective, high quality care for all people.
The next meeting of HCAP will be at the Friends Center, 7 PM on August 9, 2016, not August 2 to accommodate vacation schedules.
There will be several marches at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. Join us as we support the need for single payer health care in America. We will be joining March for Our Lives, one of many marches. Meets at City Hall at 3 PM and we’ll walk the length of Broad Street to the Wells Fargo Center, location of the DNC. Along the way, we will be holding our signs asking for single payer.

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
