Our healthcare system was broken before COVID-19. Now, with unprecedented job loss, Washington State has over one million people without health insurance--during a pandemic! And those that do have employer-based insurance could see premium increases of up to 40% next year. It's insane.
What can we do? How do we fight for relief? Whole Washington has a C.U.R.E. It's the COVID-19 Urgent Response Effort.
CURE is comprised of three very easy actions designed to make demands in unison across the different levels of government in Washington. The time needed is minimal, and the progress we make, could be substantial.
- ACTION #1: Sign the Petition to Governor Jay Inslee
- ACTION #2: Contact Your State Elected Officials
- ACTION #3: Reach Out to Local/Municipal Elected Officials
We need you to share and amplify these actions to reach thousands. Can we count on you?
We want everyone to have high‑quality, comprehensive healthcare.
By 'everyone' we mean every single resident of Washington State. Our healthcare should not be tied to our employment, our spouse, our age, or our ability to pay.
By 'comprehensive' we mean inpatient, outpatient, vision, dental, mental healthcare services, and more.
We want the care our doctor recommends, not what an insurance company decides or is willing to pay.
We want to change the
way we pay.
Instead of paying profit-motivated insurance companies, we want fair and dedicated taxes to fund a trust that covers our healthcare expenses.
We want the elimination of deductibles, co-pays, unaffordable prescriptions, and other unpredictable out-of-pocket costs, and no more medical bankruptcies or crowdfunding campaigns, ever.
We want to pay nothing at the time services are rendered. We want to walk out of the hospital or doctor’s office with no bills looming ahead of us.
We want freedom.
We want to go to the doctor of our choice. No networks, referrals, or prior authorizations.
We want freedom from worry. If we’re sick or injured, we want to focus on healing, not financial ruin. If we’re healthy, we want the preventive care to stay that way.
We don’t want to be locked into jobs or relationships out of fear of losing health insurance. We want the freedom to pursue our dreams.
