Our for-profit health care system has failed communities of color and struggling families and individuals. Even after the passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, our health care system still leaves nearly 30 million individuals uninsured and at least 40 million who can’t afford to use the insurance they have.
The ability to see a provider or the ability to afford needed medications have not improved for communities of color, regardless of the expansion of insurance coverage.
Insurance continues to be confusing, constantly changing, and unaffordable, having harsh impacts on communities of color. Race and income impact the care you get—or don’t get.
Medicare for All can and will address the discrimination in our health care system and refocus our health care system on patient care.
