The Case For Universal Health Care in CO
Dr. Ivan J. Miller,
President, Colorado Foundation for Universal Health Care
Health Care in Colorado has undergone significant change in Colorado over the past few years after the passage of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), with the expansion of Medicaid and the creation of Connect for Colorado Health Exchange. The ACA also gives states an opportunity to use waivers to obtain Federal funds for their own systems. Seeking these waivers, Colorado has developed a ballot initiative for universal health care through a Colorado Health Care Cooperative. Universal Health Care is the norm in many developed countries, but faces some stiff resistance in the U.S. Dr. Ivan J. Miller will discuss the benefits of Universal Health Care and will share findings of economic studies that show how providing coverage for all Coloradans can help to reduce administrative costs, lower health care costs for both employees and employers, increase funding for health care, and help to stimulate the economy.
Ivan J. Miller, Ph.D., is a psychologist in private practice, a small business owner, and the President of the Colorado Foundation for Universal Health Care. Since 1994 he has published and presented on health care economics and health care system reforms. In 2003, he proposed a universal health care system called Balanced Choice, and later published a book by the same name title. Since 2008, he has worked with Senator Aguilar to develop a universal health care proposal for Colorado, the Colorado Health Care Cooperative. He is the author of the Executive Summary of Dr. Gerald Friedman’s 2013 economic analysis of the Colorado Health Care Cooperative.
