Is it possible to create a co-operative healthcare network that can offer access to healthcare?

Health insurance companies are interested in profits. They obviously want to minimize paying sick people's medical bills. It is easier for a healthy individual to pay less for insurance premiums than for a chronically ill person. There is a lot of opposition to expanding Medicare and Medicaid too. A Single Payer system would be good, but difficult to pass laws for it.

    Our community, a mostly Black municipality right outside of New York City, is about to lose our only hospital because its corporate owners aren’t making enough money from it. What is possible and where are there examples of Progressive solutions to keeping that institution open?
