Valerie June, who has been diagnosed with Type 1.5 diabetes, said, "Whenever you go to a coffee shop or a store, you see the price and know how much it’s going to cost, but for someone to be struggling with a terminal or chronic disease or injury or illness and not be presented with the prices or what something is going to cost is robbery. It is so wrong. Transparency is key so we are able to make informed choices about our care and to ensure that we are not being overcharged."

Hospitals and Insurers are robbing all of us.

100 million Americans drowning in medical debt.

When hospitals and insurers don’t show their prices they charge us whatever they want.

Their greed is destroying the American Dream.

We look to our elected officials in Congress to put a stop to the overcharging.

Empower us with real prices. And hold hospitals and insurance companies accountable.

We demand actual prices and true transparency in healthcare.

Power to the Patients.

The PSA will air on television in Washington, D.C. and on digital platforms across the country. Power to the Patients will also have plane pull banners over Las Vegas this weekend.
