Hip Hop Takes on Healthcare

Meanwhile, rapper Fat Joe is rallying Busta Rhymes, Rick Ross, and French Montana for a concert in Washington, D.C. Their mission? To spotlight discrepancies in hospital charges and advocate for healthcare reform. Collaborating with the non-profit organization Power to the Patients, these performers aim to demand transparency and accountability from hospitals and insurance companies, as only 25% of hospitals currently adhere to federal guidelines on pricing transparency.
