Tenet spends $630K to derail 'Medicare for All'

Hospital groups like Dallas-based Tenet Healthcare are among the top donors in the political fight against "Medicare for All," according The Intercept.

Based on data from MapLight, a nonpartisan research organization that tracks political spending, The Intercept reports that hospitals and hospital groups are working alongside payers and drug companies to campaign against Medicare for All.

Health systems like Tenet, St. Louis-based Ascension; Nashville, Tenn.-based HCA Healthcare; Franklin, Tenn.-based CHS; and Arlington-based Texas Health Resources are all members of the Partnership for America's Health Care Future, a lobbying group created to fight Medicare for All.   

The Intercept reviewed Tenet corporate filings and found it donated nearly $630,000 to the Partnership for America's Health Care Future between July 2018 and June 2019.
