CWA's Health Care Reform Priorities - Overview

The Communications Workers of America broad principles for healthcare reform are that it should guarantee every one quality affordable healthcare with comprehensive benefits; let workers keep the health coverage they currently have; significantly control costs; provide for a strong government role, especially with respect to enforcing the rules by which private insurance companies operate; improve quality; and be based on progressive financing. The following are CWA's four specific priorities that will help achieve our principles for reform: 1.Employers should be responsible for covering their workers. 2.Guarantee coverage for pre-Medicare retirees. 3.Guarantee people a choice of private and public health insurance plans. 4.Do not tax the healthcare benefits of working families.
