June 6 national health care reform kickoff
Today, June 6, 2009 marks the kickoff of a nationwide grass roots campaign to support and promote President Obama's legislative agenda on health care reform. The calls for volunteers to host or attend small-group gatherings to hear the President's speech later today and independently organize efforts for follow-up. MedSave.com is participating in the event with an announcement of expanded access to affordable insurance coverage for many of the 46 million Americans without health insurance. Our emphasis on "Be Part of the Health Care Solution" calls for individual responsibility and activism. We estimate that up to 40 million of these uninsured are now eligible for at least one of the new low cost health insurance programs now available throughout most of the country. Volunteers are welcome to spread the message throughout other similar-minded reform groups. Great results can be achieved through one-on-one discussions about our individual health care responsibilities.
"The race is on to make sure Congress produces a plan that reflects the president's call for reduced costs, guaranteed choice, and quality care for all. All summer we'll be reaching out to our neighbors, knocking on doors, serving in our communities, and building a grassroots network strong enough to win" wrote Organizing for America, the promoter of this event. "These gatherings on June 6th are just the beginning of a battle between those who fought and believe in change and those who would protect a broken status quo. The stakes for our country could not be greater."
Today marks the launch of a new health insurance enrollment program called "QuikApproval" allows immediate acceptance up to 36 of the nation's most affordable renewable individual major medical insurance plans through Celticenrollment.com. Other insurance companies are expected to follow this lead in the near future. We also announced liberalized acceptance into preferred rate, standard rate and sub-standard rate classes helps ensure that more Americans have access to affordable health insurance. We expect to increase education about universal health insurance plans currently available as well as those likely to be introduced later this year. Each of these small innovations mark a step toward comprehensive affordable universal health coverage.
"The greatest risk is waiting" said a MedSave.com spokesperson." Too many Americans are sitting back waiting for government to provide a solution that falls into their lap. That attitude is both risky to their own personal welfare as well as an ineffective way to achieve real health care reform. As a first step, each person should learn about developing health care options that are available now in their local community and take action to be enrolled in the best available health care plans."
