UPENDING THE HEALTH CARE STATUS QUO: UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE PLANS
There are more than 82,000 San Franciscans who lack health insurance and do not qualify for Medicare or Medicaid who might benefit from Mayor Gavin Newsom's plan for citywide universal health care.

Meet the experts who can explain how these plans work, the costs and benefits, and the potential for a nationwide universal health care system.
