The COVID-19 pandemic revealed that our own health depends on the health of the person next to us. Ensuring that others can get needed care protects us and our communities.
The Health Care Emergency Guarantee Act would guarantee necessary health care, including prescription drugs, to everyone at no cost to individuals during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The number of uninsured and under-insured will likely exceed 100 million people in the U.S. during the pandemic. Those with insurance could still get surprise medical bills.
Hospital treatment for coronavirus costs tens of thousands of dollars. People are already delaying treatment due to costs, and some have died after being turned away due to lack of insurance.
As individuals, we can wash our hands, avoid unnecessary travel and check on friends and neighbors. As a united force, we can demand Congress do everything possible to protect everyone’s health, no exceptions.
Every sick person in America–regardless of income, race, or immigration status–should be able to get treatment during this crisis.
