1985, Health Care For All (HCFA) is one of the most dynamic state-based
consumer health advocacy organizations in the country. Our mission is to create
a consumer-centered health care system that provides comprehensive, affordable,
accessible, culturally-competent, high-quality care for everyone, especially
the most vulnerable among us.
HCFA works to expand
health care access, improve quality and control costs in Massachusetts through
its sponsorship of numerous policy advocacy coalitions. These coalitions bring
together a wide variety of organizations to work in concert to make health care
changes. By uniting diverse constituencies, HCFA is able to magnify its policy
reach on many fronts. HCFA also helps thousands of individuals enroll in and
renew their health coverage each year through our consumer assistance HelpLine.
We use the health care access barriers that HelpLine callers report to inform
our state-level health advocacy agenda.
organization’s achievements include leading four waves of broad Massachusetts
health reform, including legislation in 2006 that was the precursor for the
Affordable Care Act. The latest legislation in 2012 resulted in the nation’s
first comprehensive law aimed at
controlling health care cost growth through adoption of alternative payment
methodologies, care coordination, and investments in technology, wellness and
prevention. For more information, please visit www.hcfama.org.
