Physicians call for universal, single-payer health care system

May 25, 2016

“Our nation is at a crossroads,” Adam Gaffney, MD, lead author of the study and fellow in pulmonary and critical care medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School, said in a press release. “Despite the passage of the Affordable Care Act 6 years ago, 30 million Americans remain uninsured, an even greater are underinsured, financial barriers to care like copays and deductibles are rising, bureaucracy is growing, provider networks are narrowing, and medical costs are continuing to climb.”
