The Right Care Alliance (RCA) is a grassroots coalition of clinicians, patients, and community members organizing to make health care institutions accountable to their communities and put patients, not profits, at the heart of health care.
Our vision is of a transformed system in which the pursuit of health is a right and health care is based on healing relationships, close to home, affordable, effective and just. We all deserve a system in which health professionals and patients alike experience the care they give and receive as necessary and meaningful.
Outrageous medical bills and crushing medical debt need to stop. We oppose hospitals’ pricing and billing practices that impose ruinous financial burdens on people. We insist these sky-high prices undermine insurance coverage and are the hidden driver of the high co-pays and deductibles that create a false promise of affordability.
Drugs should be clinically proven to work before being released to the public. We opposed aducanumab (Aduhelm), a drug the FDA approved for Alzheimer’s treatment though it had insufficient evidence that this drug prevents decline of cognitive function.
No one with diabetes should die because they can’t afford their insulin. We opposed Eli Lilly, Sanofi, and Novo Nordisk and held manufacturers accountable for their outrageous price gouging that was hurting and killing so many people who could not afford insulin.
