As socialists, we know that all working people deserve guaranteed high-quality health care. The only way to achieve that is by winning Medicare for All, or a single-payer healthcare system. But instead of expanding or improving the Medicare program, the Biden administration has allowed a new layer of privatization and profiteering to take hold: Direct Contracting Entities. Direct Contacting Entities are corporations that administer the Medicare program in order to turn a profit. The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the inherent flaws of a for-profit healthcare system. Working people shouldn’t have to live in fear of losing our savings because we have had an unexpected health situation, especially not during a historic health crisis. What exactly are DCEs, and how can we stop the privatization of the Medicare program? Join DSA M4A on Feb. 22nd @ 5 PST // 8 EST to learn more about this sneaky privatization scheme and hear from M4A organizers on how your chapter can join the fight to stop it!
