Three easy ways you can spread the word about the personal option

Mar 30, 2021 by AFP

Americans deserve a personal option in their health care. They should have consistent access to their preferred doctors at an affordable and transparent price, made possible through insurance that works for them.

Lawmakers have a role to play, of course. They must advance policies that make quality care more affordable and easier to access. And, importantly, they must refrain from passing sweeping legislation that would further entangle government with health care.

You have a critical role, too. Your help is needed to push lawmakers — and their good proposals to further the personal option — across the finish line.

Here are a few things you can do, pulled from our Personal Option Playbook.

Discuss and debate the personal option on social media

Once you’ve learned more about the personal option, share your knowledge on Facebook, Twitter, and other social media to get the conversation on these important issues started.

You can drive the discussion forward by mentioning that the personal option:

  • Will ensure that you have greater access to better quality care at a price you can afford.
  • Prevents government bureaucracy from coming between you and the doctors you trust.
  • Encourages transparency and eliminates red tape and confusion, giving patients more control.
  • Is the opposite approach to proposals that would give government more control over your health care.

Use the hashtag #PersonalOption to bring more people to the discussion and include a few graphics to add flavor to your content.
