If you missed our annual Single Payer Strategy Conference, it’s your lucky day. Today we share a conference presentation all about the impact of Private Equity on healthcare (spoiler alert: it’s not good.) Our guests are Eagan Kemp, Health Care Policy Advocate at Public Citizen; Rachel Madley, Health Policy Advisor to Medicare for All Act chief author Representative Pramila Jayapal (D-WA 7); and Robert Seifert, Senior Fellow at Americans for Financial Reform.
Eagan talks about Public Citizen’s recent report (with an emphasis on recent PE acquisitions and areas of concern, including end-of-life care, home health care, traveling nurses, reproductive care, and Medicare Privatization/ACO Reach)
Robert Seifert on AFR’s recent work in the space (depending on whether you want to present on the broader topic of PE in health care, you could definitely go before or after me)
Rachel (as I think folks will be most excited to hear from her and be most likely will stick around for it) on Rep. Jayapal’s Healthcare Ownership Transparency Act and any other PE stuff she wants to raise.
