Healthcare expenses now undermine American prosperity. High prices are crushing every citizen and burdening businesses. One in five Americans now have medical debt in collections and in some parts of the country, harassing debt collectors threaten the open doors of the medical profession. 24% of Americans report not filling a prescription because of high prices.
Spending on health care threatens every aspect of American society. The time for common-sense reform has arrived. All of us can play a part in driving badly needed reforms, both in the marketplace and in the policy world. As Margaret Mead said, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has."
We are a grassroots movement of people who believe that transparency can cut waste, expose the money games and lower healthcare costs for everyone.
