WEBINAR: 3 Myths of #MedicareForAll

Mar 10, 2019

I grew up in Canada and have been speaking on the government-controlled healthcare topic throughout the employee benefits industry for 20+ years. 

Like a horror movie, the topic is screaming “I’m baaaaack!” And it is - in a big way. 

A Reuters poll in August 2018 found that 70% of Americans support Medicare For All. In January, a Kaiser poll brought another insight. It found that many people change their opinion when presented with additional information and arguments from the other side. 

I know you’re getting questions from your clients. Because I’ve worked in healthcare across both countries, I wanted to share my perspective on this guaranteed hot topic. To understand the social differences between Canadians and Americans, read an article I wrote here. My goal is to position you to have informed, intelligent conversations with your clients. 

Click below to watch a 48-minute webinar recording where I covered the following points… 

  • How does healthcare really work in other countries? 
  • What’s different there compared to here? 
  • What will #MedicareForAll do – and not do – for Americans? 

If you’re wondering if it’s worth your 48 minutes, I received multiple positive responses including: 

“So much awesome data! I’m glad I have a copy of this webinar to review. Thanks for all the great info!”

“Thank you so much for a fantastic webinar…It was so interesting to hear your personal experience with single payer…I’ve saved your presentation…and have shared it with my co-workers…this was the most effective one I’ve seen...”

After you’ve watched, I’d love to hear your feedback. Does this match with your experience? Did I share any ideas that move the needle toward helping people understand the issues? Comment below or send me an email to

I didn’t want to go to urgent care or the ER. Using Doctors Online in my freshbenies membership, I went online to ask a doctor. The doctor responded and said to check my blood pressure. He followed up with the next day to make sure my numbers were OK. By then, the feeling was starting to go away. He told me if it persists to contact my doctor. It was great that I didn’t have to go somewhere and wait forever, and it was free.” - Kelli from Texas
