Medicare for All, Can We Afford It?

Dr. Vince Markovchick spoke to the Freedom From Religion Foundation: Denver chapter on Saturday, June 1st on the topic of Medicare for All.

Dr Markovchick is a graduate of the Temple University School of Medicine in 1970. He has been a practicing Emergency Medicine physician since completing his residency in Emergency Medicine at the University of Chicago in 1976. He is a former Director of Emergency Medical Services at Denver Health where he practiced full time for 32 years.

He is a Past President of the American Board of Emergency Medicine and is a Professor Emeritus of Emergency Medicine in the University of Colorado Department of Emergency Medicine. He is currently Co-President of the Health Care for All Colorado Foundation and is a member of Physicians for a National Health Program.

Dr Markovchick’s interest in access to affordable quality health care comes from the myriad outpatient encounters he has had with patients in the Denver Health ED many who had serious illness and injuries but no had no health insurance.

His current focus is on the unsustainable absurdly high cost of health much of it due to waste, fraud, and abuse on the part of private health insurers, drug companies, hospitals, and health care providers.
