On May 15, 2017, retired nurses Judy Ballinger and Jonee Grassi gave an informative presentation about Healthy CA, SB562, “medicare for all” to El Cerrito and Richmond residents in the home of El Cerrito Progressives member Barbara Chan. Likened to Single Payer or Universal Healthcare, Healthy CA would provide coverage for all California residents. This encompasses ALL medically necessary care, including medical, vision, dental, hearing, and reproductive.
One comprehensive plan, freedom of provider choice, no more networks. SB562 was introduced by State Senators Lara and Atkins and in our district is being carried by Assemblyman Tony Thurmond and Assemblywoman Nancy Skinner.
