Puerto Ricans are U.S. citizens. We have a right to equal funding for healthcare.

about-usWe are a group of concerned patient advocates, doctors, hospitals, insurers, activists, labor unions and business leaders that have joined forces to call on the Federal Government to end the appalling injustice in funding of healthcare in Puerto Rico.

We believe that restoring equitable healthcare funding is essential to redress the blatant discrimination against the more than 3.5 million U.S. citizens who live in Puerto Rico and pay equal Medicare taxes as mainland residents.

The Coalition has launched a full-scale campaign calling on President Obama intervene to prevent the collapse of the healthcare system by reversing pending CMS cuts to the Island’s Medicare Advantage program.
