Calls to action
Colorado should vote on a publicly funded, privately delivered health care system
In this opinion piece published in the Colorado Sun, Colorado Foundation for Universal Health Care Board Chair Bill Semple says Colorado legislators must give Coloradans an option to vote for a nonprofit single payer to pay for universal health care for all Coloradans.
Health & justice now
Universal health care would help cure COVID-19, racial injustice
Lincoln, my friend of 20 years, called in early April to let me know that he had taken his mother to the doctor on two separate occasions and her symptoms were minimized, dismissed and she was sent home. The third and final time the staff decided to test her. That’s when they discovered his mother had COVID-19. She died later that day.
Moral injury among health providers mounts as corporations restrict their ability to care for us
Moral injury, or the psychological distress experienced by committing or failing to prevent acts which oppose one’s moral beliefs, is posing an increasing threat to physicians in the U.S. as more patients are unable to afford care due to lack of health insurance.
The Colorado Foundation for Universal Health Care (CO4UHC) champions a single payer universal health care system (such as improved Medicare for All)—the simplest, most cost effective way to care for everyone.
Sometimes states must shine as beacons of innovation. Colorado could lead the way. We are the only group working on a universal health care plan for Colorado. We also work for national improved Medicare for All. Everyone deserves health care. We at CO4UHC will continue our work until every single human has the health care they need when they need it.
CF4UHC was founded in 1996 as the Patient Advocacy Coalition to help people overturn denials from health insurance companies and access affordable health care. Our work taught us that the U.S. for-profit health insurance industry system is broken; small tweaks will only make it more complicated and expensive; and the proven way to finance great health care for all affordably is with universal health care. In 2011, our Board of Directors voted to change our name to the Colorado Foundation for Universal Health Care.
