Give So Others Can Live
A few of the thousands of people who have been given help, including life-saving and emergency medical care, thanks to CDLU’s community of caring supporters.
We Changed the Medical Industry
When the nation’s second-largest hospital chain, Tenet Healthcare Corp., announced they would stop over-charging the uninsured and would cease putting liens on people’s homes, they credited CDLU and our director K.B. Forbes for their dramatic policy reversal.
CDLU was profiled on the top-rated news program “60 Minutes” for our work on behalf of the uninsured. “Hospitals charge uninsured people four or five times more than what they would accept as payment in full from an insurance company. Simply put, it’s price-gouging,” says Forbes. CDLU fought back and changed an industry.
