Single Payer Healthcare Plan
A Pennsylvania senator is introducing a bill that would provide affordable healthcare for all residents. Sen. Jim Ferlo wants to implement a single payer healthcare plan. It will provide medical, dental, vision, prescription and mental healthcare coverage for every Pennsylvanian. Ferlo says access to healthcare shouldn’t be affiliated with employment. The single payer healthcare plan would also reduce and control overall costs of providing coverage. Businesses would have lower payroll costs, lower administrative costs and would reduce wasteful spending.
