Kentuckians for Single Payer Health Care invites you to a free webinar featuring Dr. Ana Malinow who will present on: Value-Based or Value-Less? From the Board Room to the Exam Room: Medicare, Privatization, and the Menace of “Value-Based” Care.

Insurance companies, venture capital, private equity, many academics, and the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services assert that "value-based care" is the solution to our health care system's high costs and low performance. 

Don McCanne, MD, policy expert for Physicians for a National Health Program, says:

…(V)alue-based health care is a business concept rather than a patient care concept. Wrong priority.

We have serious problems in health care. Too many are left out. Too many face excessive financial barriers to care. Too many are deprived of their choices of health care professionals and institutions. The value-based models will do nothing to correct these deficiencies.

We who are fighting for a health care system that works for everyone need to understand "value-based care."

Hear Dr. Ana Malinow on Thur., Dec. 7, 2023, at 5:00 pm ET

Following her presentation, Dr. Malinow will respond to our questions. You’re invited!

If you would like to participate, please email Kay at requesting to be sent the zoom link for the Dec. 7 webinar.

Dr. Ana Malinow spent three decades working as a pediatrician with immigrant, refugee and underserved children in Ohio, Texas, Pennsylvania, and California before retiring as Clinical Professor of Pediatrics from the University of California San Francisco School of Medicine. She is past president of Physicians for a National Health Program and has been featured on national and international television and radio on health care reform and the stealth privatization of traditional Medicare.

She is currently a lead organizer for National Single Payer and The Movement to End Privatization of Medicare.
