The country stars join Valerie June to address the healthcare criss in the United States as part of the Power To The Patients PSA.
Of the importance of this new campaign, Jelly Roll says:
“Hospitals and Insurance companies all around the United States are stealing our future by looting every patient, worker, employer, and family across the country.”
“American citizens in need of care are afraid to enter a hospital.”
According to the commercial, “100 million Americans are drowning in medical debt” due to the lack of transparency from healthcare providers.
Medical debt is the leading cause of personal bankruptcy in America and, according to the most recent semi-annual study by Patient Rights Advocate, only 36% of hospitals in America are compliant with the current Federal Price Transparency Rule.
This new ad aims to force hospitals and insurance companies around the country to publicize actual prices for their services and procedures ahead of time, instead of waiting to bill the patient after the visit and having a surprise in terms of how much they owe.
