Meeting with Representative Brian Turner
February 25, 2019
WCMS CEO, Miriam Schwarz, meets with Representative Brian Turner to discuss WCMS' 2019 Legislative Priority of "Affordable Healthcare for All"!
We discussed examples of Project Access patients who are unable to access affordable healthcare in spite of working hard to do so. Almost 60% of Project Access low income uninsured are ages 50-64, 62% are working poor, many lost jobs due to health issues, and have difficulty finding employment because they are close to retirement. We shared with Rep. Turner the story of Jerry Moncus. We also discussed keeping legislation out of the exam room, scope of practice, and HCA’s charity care policy.
