Flights & Rights: Access to Health Care

Wednesday, January 5, 2022 - 5:00pm to 6:00pm
Flights & Rights is our regularly scheduled community series featuring important civil rights issues and great beverages. 

This month, we join with partners in a conversation around access to health care. Mergers and acquisitions between health care entities like hospitals, hospital systems, and provider organizations are prolific in Washington state and can negatively impact cost, quality, and access to necessary health care services. Yet in Washington, these health entity consolidations receive minimal oversight, allowing large health care systems to dictate patients’ access to care including reproductive, end-of-life, and gender-affirming care. ACLU-WA Health Care and Liberty Counsel Leah Rutman moderates a discussion on these issues and legislative solutions.
