Medicare for All

At Healthcare Durango, we feel that the best way to implement universal healthcare is a National Improved Medicare for All (NIMA) system.  NIMA is classified as a “single-payer” system, which simply means that one entity, the federal government, pays for all healthcare.  This certainly does not mean that the federal government has control of all medicare care.  Under the NIMA system, doctors and other providers decide what treatment you need and should get.  The government just pays for that care.

Much of the information you will find on this website will be information about NIMA and why we think it makes the most sense.  We would like to hear your feedback and your stories about healthcare in your life.
