Letter to Editor: Jackie of Nashville, TN
Jackie of Nashville, TN writes:
I am privileged to have medical insurance but write as a retired healthcare provider on behalf of those who will be without coverage should this legislation be repealed, particularly without another viable plan in place. Lack of healthcare is not only catastrophic for the patient but for their family as well. An interruption in care plans often dooms results in ways that lead to escalation of the disease process, including death. I can’t imagine, even from a business standpoint, we would move forward without an evaluation of best practices and a vision toward care for all. In the end, we all do better as a society, when we all do well. For caregivers, their families and friends, this is not a philosophical event or a concept in the abstract….it is someone’s spouse, child, sibling or parent. Someone with a face and a name…a history and a future that will be impacted. Please close your eyes and picture it being one of your family. We have entrusted you to do so. Please oppose the repeal of this act.
Help Jackie get this message heard by adding your voice.
We’re stronger together.
