Push to Pass
Health Care Emergency Guarantee Act
What is the Push to Pass Campaign?
As we weather increasing COVID-19 infections, Colorado groups that support universal health care are teaming up to demand the affordable health care that we need. We’re calling this coalition the Push to Pass.
Cover everyone with health care during the pandemic.
Right now we’re focused on passing the Health Care Emergency Guarantee Act (HCEGA), which will cover all out-of-pocket expenses for people with insurance and all health care costs for those with no coverage, for the duration of the pandemic.
People are dying without care or going broke to get care. This act would help us all more than any other pandemic proposals. For a detailed comparison see our Comparison Chart.
We’ve put together a bunch of resources so you can help the campaign in whatever ways work for you.
