Insurance Co. Insider Turned Investigative Journalist and Health Care Advocate

President of 'Business for Medicare for All' and 'Medicare for All NOW!'

Renowned Investigative Journalist and Columnist

Advocate for Health Care Reform

Wendell Potter is one of the most recognized whistleblowers and advocates for health care reform in the United States. Dubbed the “Daniel Ellsberg of corporate America,” he is the only former health care executive to testify before Congress against his former industry, and one of the news media’s most-cited sources for coverage of American health care access, coverage, and affordability. His voice was instrumental to passage of the Affordable Care Act, and has been a leading voice advocating for greater health care reforms to provide affordable care and coverage to Americans. He regularly collaborates on projects with elected officials and other national health care thought leaders.

In his speeches, Potter offers among the freshest and most insightful analysis available of the U.S health care system. His ability to articulate how large insurance companies have come to control every facet of the health care marketplace is regularly cited in publications like the New York Times, Washington Post, NPR, MSNBC and numerous other outlets. His level of understanding of American health insurance companies, one of the largest and most important industries in the world, is unique in its level of inside insight into how insurers play their game.

He is the author several bestsellers, including Nation on the Take and Deadly Spin: An Insurance Company Insider Speaks Out on How Corporate PR Is Killing Health Care and Deceiving Americans. 

Potter has spoken to numerous physician groups about how insurers interrupt the doctor-patient relationship, and has spoken to groups focused on the social determinants of health and value-based care. He is regularly sought after by groups that seek to explore ways to expand insurance coverage, to lower deductibles and co-pays, to counter anti-health reform propaganda, and to increase the control doctors have over patient care. His counsel has also been sought by groups of attorneys seeking insight into how to obtain justice for clients foiled by an insurance company, and by large employers paying exorbitant sums to carriers.
