To the thousands of people that read this blog in the course of a week, we thank you for coming and being involved and engaged in the health policy debate in California. If this blog and the other work of Health Access has provided a service, a resource, or just an excuse to procrastinate, please consider making an end-of-year contribution to the Health Access Foundation. You can simply click here.
It’s been an exciting year. We’ve been busy, and not just with “the year of health reform” and pushing as hard as possible for consumers on affordability, cost containment, and other key health issues. We’ve also been working on the SCHIP and children’s coverage, timely access to care and other regulations to oversee HMOs, assisting language access and medical interpretation, implementing our new law against hospital overcharging, working to watchdog both government agencies and the health industry on behalf of California consumers, and keeping alive the vision of universal single-payer health care in the midst of the battles of the moment.
Next year, we’ll need your support and contributions, as we gear up a major campaign against health care buddget cuts, continue the work around both immediate and long-term health reform, and work to make health care a major issue in the campaign season.
The more support we have, the more we can do. Any contribution would be greatly appreciated.
