Healthcare for All Ohioans: Our Journey

Innovation Design Thinking Process Roadmap Instagram Post

Who are we?

Healthcare for All Ohioans (SPAN Oho) is a non-profit that has been championing universal healthcare in Ohio for over 20 years. We focus on educating the public and supporting Single-Payer Action Network Ohio, our allied 501(c)4 organization. Our core mission is achieving healthcare reform in Ohio and the United States, guaranteeing healthcare access for all residents.

Universal Healthcare in Ohio: Exploring Single-Payer Solutions

At Healthcare for All Ohioans, we advocate for achieving universal healthcare coverage in Ohio and the United States. We believe a single-payer healthcare system offers the most effective path towards this goal.

What is a Single-Payer System?

A single-payer healthcare system provides comprehensive health insurance to all residents of a state, managed by a single public entity. This eliminates the need for private insurance companies and aims to offer:

  • Guaranteed Coverage: Everyone in Ohio would be insured, regardless of employment status, health condition, or age.
  • Reduced Costs: By streamlining administration and potentially negotiating lower drug prices, a single-payer system could decrease overall healthcare spending.
  • Improved Access: Reduced costs and administrative burdens could lead to easier access to preventive care and specialists.

Is Single-Payer Right for Ohio?

Does Ohio healthcare leave you stressed? You're not alone. Many Ohioans struggle with high costs, complex plans, and limited coverage.

There's a better way! We at Healthcare for All Ohioans believe a single-payer system offers the most comprehensive and efficient way to achieve universal healthcare.

A single-payer healthcare system would provide comprehensive coverage for everyone, including medical, vision, dental, and mental health services.


  • No more sky-high premiums!
  • No surprise co-pays or deductibles!
  • Financial security in the face of medical emergencies!

Healthcare is a basic human right. Everyone in Ohio deserves access to quality, affordable care. Join us in advocating for a single-payer healthcare system in our state and nationwide which would serve all Ohioans. Together, we can create a win-win situation for everyone - whether through legislation in our state or nationwide!
