  • Power to the Patients?

    OK, so there's a snazzy website, ads during the Oscars, and celebrity appearance by Susan Sarandon and Shepard Fairey for something called "Power to the Patients". Pricing transparency seems like a good goal, but who exactly is funding this campaign?

    I like to think that my Google-Fu is pretty strong, but I've spent 15 or 20 minute trying to research this advocacy group and I still haven't made much progress in following the dollars. Anyone have any insight into this group?

    Probably dark money of independent docs according to this article.

    Unless this is misinformation.

    The likely culprit, or not.

      If Susan Sarandon is an advocate color me skeptical of the full intent of the organization.

            Lol Nader. The seatbelt issue is more complex than people realize.
