Make Single Payer Health Care in PA Happen

In 2017 the Affordable Care Act (Obama Care) allows states to develop their own health care system.
 
In Pennsylvania, we now have an extremely complicated multiple payer system. The payers are private insurance companies and costly non-profit companies that act like the for-profits. Each company offers a multitude of plans, each with varying levels of deductibles, co-payments and coverage.
 
Economic studies have shown that healthcare plans with a single payer are the most fiscally responsible. You can read the latest study by economist Gerald Friedman here: http://www.healthcare4allpa.org/economic-impact-study/
 
Pennsylvania Senate Bill 400 would establish The Pennsylvania Health Care Plan, a Single Payer Solution. The cost to individuals and families would be based on incomes and the plan provides complete healthcare coverage. The Pennsylvania Health Care Plan is easy to understand: instead of premiums, you pay a wellness tax (3% of income for individuals and families, 10% of payroll for businesses). Coverage is comprehensive: there are no co-pays, no deductibles, no doughnut holes, and no networks.
