About Friends of Medicare (FOM)
The Friends of Medicare is non-profit, volunteer association that aims to promote and protect public health care in Alberta. Our organization was founded in the early 1980s in response to government plans to introduce “extra billing” for Medicare-insured health services. Since that time, Friends of Medicare has turned its attention to issues like chronic under-funding, staff shortages and privatization in Alberta’s health care system. Several thousand individual Albertans are currently members of the Friends of Medicare – each paying a small annual fee to help cover the costs of our website and newsletter. Friends of Medicare also receives support from a number of community, church and labour groups that share our concerns about public health care. Decisions about policy and campaigns are made by the Friends of Medicare’s provincial executive board whose members are chosen at an annual general membership meeting.
