Petris Center Director Dr. Richard Scheffler has a new op-ed entitled “Single-payer plan is within reach of California” published today in the San Francisco Chronicle. The op-ed describes how just-released Petris analysis identifies three changes in the California health care system that can generate enough reductions in health spending to finance a feasible path to universal health coverage in the state within the next few years. You can read the full op-ed in the San Francisco Chronicle here. The op-ed is based upon the Petris Center report, “Proposal to Use Three Initiatives to Lower Healthcare Spending and Finance Universal Health Insurance Coverage in California,” which can be accessed here. The report was accompanied by a blog on the Health Affairs website, which you can read here.
