On January 10, country music star Jelly Roll and Grammy-award winning musician Wyclef Jean will team up with Grammy nominated Fat Joe for an event in Washington, D.C. to advocate for a more affordable and equitable healthcare system through price transparency.
With Congressional leaders and government officials in attendance, the artists will shed light on the unconscionable injustices created when hospitals and insurers hide prices, which stifles competition and allows the industry to evade accountability for overcharges and price gouging. As part of the event, Fat Joe will serve as the emcee, while Wyclef Jean and Jelly Roll perform.
“The U.S. healthcare system is America’s sickness,” said Fat Joe. “Healthcare price transparency isn’t a partisan or complicated issue. It’s common sense. The only people opposed to it are healthcare industry interests profiting by keeping patients in the dark. Price transparency can protect patients, families, employers, workers, even our own government from healthcare overcharging and pricing fraud as it does everywhere else in the economy.”
“Clear prices allow consumers to choose affordable treatments without worrying that routine care will result in overcharges and even bankruptcy,” he added. “Price transparency holds hospitals and insurance companies accountable, forcing them to compete and lowering costs, improving healthcare access, quality, and outcomes.”
Fat Joe will also join Power to the Patients, affiliated organization Patient Rights Advocate, and employers from across the country in meetings with Congressional leaders urging them to seize the momentum and get healthcare price transparency legislation passed and sent to President Joe Biden‘s desk for signing.
