Donald Trump Is Losing On An Issue Voters Care A Lot About. Here ’s How He’s Trying to Change That
With nearly 200,000 Americans dead from COVID-19 and millions more who lost their health insurance when they lost their jobs this year, President Donald Trump tried this week—as he has done throughout his presidency—to change the conversation. On Sunday, the President issued a new executive order aimed at lowering prescription drug prices, an issue dear to many voters, and boasted on Twitter that “prices are coming down FAST.” The reality is more complicated. Trump’s new executive order, which revokes and replaces a different executive order on drug prices that he signed in July, directs the...

Americans sick with Covid disproportionately poor, minorities, uninsured and food insecure
(Physicians for a National Health Program) A new study finds that working-age adults who stayed home sick with symptoms of coronavirus in April-May were more likely to be people of color (Black, Hispanic, Asian), low-income, and have less education, compared to adults who remained working or who were absent from work because of non-Covid illness. The Covid group also had high rates of uninsurance and food insecurity, which could inform any future efforts to help those most impacted by the virus.

A newpolicy brief from the  UCLA Center for Health Policy Research shows that low-income California adults are less likely to receive timely dental care like regular checkups and are more likely to visit the dentist for specific problems than those with higher incomes — a fact that holds true even for low-income residents who have dental insurance.The study authors found that among those adults with the lowest incomes, 59% had seen a dentist within the last year, compared with 80% for higher-income residents. The disparity persisted even for those with private dental insurance, with 75% of the lowest-income...

George Floyd’s violent and senseless death has justly sparked a national outpouring of outrage. Multiracial waves of protesters have called for an end to racism and racial injustice, particularly for Black Americans. Within the context of a grim pandemic, Floyd’s untimely death also magnifies the urgency to address another critical dimension of racial injustice: health inequity in America. It’s long past time to end the disproportionate, unjust and unnatural impact of disease on black Americans and other people of color. Diseases—like COVID-19—do not discriminate.

Protesting Police Brutality and Racial Oppression Is Essential Work
As thousands of people march in the streets to protest police brutality, many worry about the risk of COVID-19 transmission. Protesters do not always social distance or wear masks. It is difficult to maintain six feet of separation when the streets fill quickly; it can be tough to call out for change behind a mask; and silent protests feel inadequate when the goal is to finally have one’s voice heard. Because of mass gatherings, COVID-19 cases are projected to rise. This is particularly frightening for people living in places, like Minneapolis, where daily hospitalizations and deaths from COVID-19 are on the rise or ...

Did You Lose Your Health Insurance Amid the Coronavirus Pandemic? You May Have Other Options
Liz Clausen never thought her husband would lose his job. He was the first full-time hire at the Austin-based startup where he worked as a programmer, and the economy was booming just a few months ago. Then the COVID-19 outbreak hit, and he was unexpectedly laid off at the end of March. When he lost his job, he lost his health insurance, too — and so did Clausen, a freelance writer who was on his plan. Suddenly, the couple — who had just bought their first house last April — faced the possibility of weathering a global pandemic without health insurance. Clausen’s story is all too familiar for milli...

COVID-19 Care Will Not End at Discharge —Government Help for the Uninsured Shouldn’t Either
Our patient had spent nearly a month on a ventilator, his lungs so diseased that every effort to allow him to breathe on his own had failed. And then, finally, he improved and the tube came out – he needed only oxygen from a mask. Now, he breathes without difficulty on his own. But that is far from the whole story. Once off the ventilator, our patient – a previously healthy man in his 40s – was for a time unable to speak aside from occasional unintelligible sounds. Nor could he move his arms or legs. Happily, he has since recovered some of his ability to speak and move, but we still do not know how long-l...
