Organizing for a National Single-Payer Healthcare System
Summer Tabling for Single Payer Healthcare
This summer United for National Healthcare is staffing informational tables in Whatcom and Skagit Counties to educate the public about single payer health care and to collect signatures for our Washington State single payer petition to our legislators.
Where and When?
It’s fun meeting a variety of people in festive summer settings and talking to them about how a single payer health care system would benefit us all. If you would like to staff a table with an experienced volunteer, contact us. Or just stop by during the above times and visit us to pick up literature and information.

The U.S. spends twice as much as other industrialized nations on health care, $8,160 per capita. Yet our system performs poorly in comparison and still leaves 46.3 million without health coverage and millions more inadequately covered.
Single-payer is a term used to describe a type of financing system. It refers to one entity acting as administrator, or payer. In the case of healthcare, a single-payer system would be setup such that one entitya government run organizationwould collect all healthcare fees, and pay out all healthcare costs.
HR 676: One Plan, One Nation
The United States National Health Insurance Act (HR 676) establishes a unique American national universal health insurance program. The bill would create a publicly financed, privately delivered healthcare system that uses the already existing Medicare program by expanding and improving it to all US residents, and all residents living in US territories.
With over 45-75 million uninsured Americans, and another 50 million who are under-insured, the time has come to change our inefficient and costly non-healthcare system. Learn more about HR676 - the United States National Health Care Act.
