Michigan for Single Payer Healthcare

"Everybody In, Nobody Out"

 

Single-Payer Universal Healthcare, also called "Medicare for All," means

a healthcare system in which providers are reimbursed by a single, public funding source.

Michigan for Single Payer is fighting for Single-Payer Healthcare for all Michiganders.

Changes in the 2021 legislation which were not in the 2019 version:

  • Establishes a new Office of Health Equity within the U.S. Department of Health tasked with ending the disparities in health access and outcomes based on race, ethnicity, sex, sexual orientation, disability, primary language, homelessness, geography and socioeconomic status.

  • Improves benefits for workers in the private insurance industry who are transitioned out of their jobs and provides preferential hiring.

  • Maintains the Tricare military health system in addition to VA and Indian Health Services.

  • Expands funding for global budgeting and prioritizes funding for minority services.

  • The new bill number is HR 1976

  • The full text of the new bill is here.

 

The CBO will evaluate the projected costs and funding requirements for the Medicare for All Act of 2021, but its study will be limited. The legislation will have complex far-reaching effects. A panel of experts and economists will become necessary to expand the scope of analysis.
