Medicare For All
H.R. 676: The Conyers Bill
Brief Summary of Legislation
The United States National Health Insurance Act establishes an American-styled national insurance program.
The bill would create a publicly financed, privately delivered health care program that uses the already existing Medicare program by expanding and improving it to all U.S. residents, and all residents living in U.S. territories. The goal of the legislation is to ensure that all Americans, guaranteed by law, will have access to the highest quality and cost effective health care services regardless of ones employment, income, or health care status.
Feb 14, '06Quote from mobilsurgrn:chuckle Trust me, it doesn't. I worked at the two busiest hospitals in Canada as far as L&D/NICU were concerned and the competition was fierce! The nurses were always sure their hospital was the best. In Toronto, there were 3 NICUs within a mile of so of eachother and of course, mine was the best:chuckle (I'm sure nurses at the other places thought theirs was better, but our staff would have argued on that).I don't think it's directly about money. I think recognition may go away in a one-payor model.
