Yes, Virginia, A Public Health Insurance Option Will Save Money and Provide Access To Good Care

Once again, probing, independent minds have concluded that a public health option will save money and provide stable access to health care.  A new Commonwealth Fund report finds “A public insurance plan can help drive new efficiencies in the system that will produce large cost reductions. Without a public plan, much of those potential savings will be lost,”

With a public option and a standard set of benefits across all private and public plans, everyone will be better able to access coverage they can understand, at a price taxpayers can afford. 

We get it. We need health care reform. We need a public option.  We don’t believe in fairy tales.  Tell Congress!
