A powerful new documentary that reaches across the political and ideological divide to expand support for major healthcare reform that advocates for a single payer system.
An in-depth look into how our dysfunctional healthcare system is damaging our economy, suffocating our businesses, discouraging physicians and negatively impacting on the nation's health, while remaining un-affordable for a third of our citizens. Despite recent reforms, Americans remain vulnerable to economic catastrophe with a serious illness or injury – the insured and uninsured alike. Many families are forced to make the horrible choice between needed drugs or treatment and food. America’s healthcare providers are saddled with a huge administrative burden while trying to focus on patient care. Fix It provides a solution to America’s runaway healthcare costs. That solution is a single-payer system (USA, 2016, 58 min., English, NR, DCP | Dir. Richard Master)
