Catalyzing worker co-ops & the solidarity economy

Local Heath Co-ops: new book by Paul Glover

Paul Glover started the Ithaca Health Alliance in 1997 because it was clear that Big Insurance would never permit Congress to enact universal coverage. For $100/YEAR, members of the Ithaca co-op were covered for 12 categories of common emergency, to specified maximum amounts, anywhere in the world. After several years, they built their own free clinic.

Glover's book Health Democracy explains how to start a local health co-op. It describes how access to health care can become affordable, democratic and humane through a national network of regional member-owned free clinics and co-ops.
