The Partnership for America’s Health Care Future (PACHF) today released its first video, “Working Together,” as part of a campaign to inform the public about ways to strengthen America’s current health care system for all Americans. The video is part of a new paid digital advertising campaign by the Partnership aimed at better educating Americans on the current health care debate.
In this video, the Partnership outlines how, by working together, America’s current system of market-based, employer-provided health care, along with public programs, work together to benefit hundreds of millions of Americans:
“So today, more Americans are covered than ever before. On top of that, most Americans are happy with the care they get. So, more people are covered, pre-existing conditions are legally protected and young adults can stay on their parents’ health plans until they are 26 years old.”
While important progress has been made to improve our nation’s health care system, the video acknowledges more must be done to lower costs and increase access for all Americans.
To solve the problem, some have suggested a plan to start over, eliminate the health care hundreds of millions of Americans rely on and replace it with a one-size-fits-all government-run plan that would leave Americans with fewer choices, a lower quality of care, and cost trillions in new taxes:
“Whether it’s called Medicare for All, single-payer or a public option, a one-size-fits-all health care system will mean all Americans have less choice and control over their doctors, treatments and coverage. It will also mean trillions in higher taxes for hardworking families, lower quality of care and longer wait times for patients…
“And health care decisions would be shifted from patients and their doctors to politicians and bureaucrats. What that means is clear. Medicare for All will mean more politics in health care and will eliminate choice for all Americans.”
Americans deserve a health care system that gives patients more choice and better-quality care at a price they can afford. As the video explains:
“Instead of starting over, America could work to improve what’s working and fix what’s broken. Let the free market and public programs work together to lower costs, increase patient choice and improve quality.”
