Do you support efforts to achieve single payer at the state level in Maryland?


As a project co-produced by Physicians for a National Health Program (PNHP) and Healthcare NOW, Healthcare is a Human Right Maryland comes out of a long history of advocacy for universal healthcare at both the state and national level. Currently, HCHR-MD is focusing our efforts on advocacy at the federal level, primarily HR-676, the Expanded and Improved Medicare for All Act. While there are a number of federal funding barriers that make a true single payer system impossible at a state level, we recognize the role of state-focused advocacy in educating the public on the benefits of universal healthcare.
