Every year 26,000 Americans die because they cannot afford the health care they need. Doctors and medical students know this. We see it affecting our patients every day. This past year, Doctors for America played an important role in helping millions of Americans enroll in affordable health insurance through the Health Insurance Marketplaces. Over 1000 of our doctors and medical students got trained to educate Americans about enrollment options. DFA provided enrollment resources for a coalition of over 50 national health care provider organizations. We even organized a highly successful Coverage is Good Medicine bus tour in Florida that helped propel the state to surpass its enrollment goals. 8 million Americans have signed up, but our efforts are far from over. Millions still need to hear from a trusted physician in their communities about life-saving coverage and why it is so important to enroll. Millions live in states where we are fighting to expand Medicaid.

Doctors for America has the tools to get millions more people covered. But we need funds to make that happen.

That’s why our docs are getting active in their communities.
