Hip-hop legend Fat Joe, iconic rapper Chuck D, and rock band Foo Fighters are joining forces for a special event on March 5 in Washington, D.C., advocating for more affordable, accessible, and equitable healthcare through true price transparency. Hosted by Power To The Patients and produced by Swift River Productions, the event aims to raise awareness about the inequality and uncertainty millions of patients face due to hidden upfront prices in the healthcare system face.

With over 100 million Americans burdened by medical debt from surprise bills, the event seeks to prompt lawmakers to mandate upfront disclosure of healthcare service prices. This transparency empowers patients to make informed decisions and reduces costs, combating medical debt, the leading cause of personal bankruptcy in the U.S.

“When we were asked by Power to the Patients to help raise awareness of the need for transparency in healthcare pricing, we immediately said yes. People suffering from illness and injury shouldn’t have to worry about being bankrupted by surprise charges for their treatment.”

As a leader in the movement, Fat Joe has advocated for healthcare price transparency on Capitol Hill, emphasizing the overwhelming support from Americans for this initiative. In December, bipartisan lawmakers introduced a bill to strengthen transparency requirements to ensure fairness and accountability in the healthcare system.
