Fix It: Healthcare at the Tipping Point
Fix It is a must-see documentary that proposes a single-payer solution to the out-of-control cost and wasteful spending on healthcare!
Filmed in the Lehigh Valley and across the country over a two-year period, the film includes more than 40 voices advocating for reform, including: business leaders, health policy experts, economists, physicians and patients. Fix-It has been shown across the country as a powerful organizing tool for single-payer action.
We're launching a new campaign in the Lehigh Valley, organizing for expanded support for single-payer, Improved Medicare For All.
In the new debate on health care, single-payer is gaining momentum as 104 House members have signed on to a bill.
Fix It is a groundbreaking documentary that cuts through the negative myths about single-payer. It takes a hard look at how our current dysfunctional health care system discourages physicians, negatively impacts on the nation's health, hurts the bottom line of businesses and causes flat wages. Our private health insurance also penalizes employers for hiring or keeping older workers.
Why does the US spend twice as much as the rest of the world for healthcare, while millions of Americans remain uninsured? Why are insurance premiums and out-of-pocket expenses out of control? Why are healthcare costs the number one cause of bankruptcy in the U.S.? Why are physicians frustrated with private insurance intruding on their clinical decisions? Why is the US ranked 37th by the World Health Organization?
Fix It looks at the evidence, revealing that single-payer improves quality of care, covers everyone and costs less.
