Health Care for America Now
Health Care for America Now (HCAN), a national coalition of more than 1,000 groups in 46 states representing 30 million people, promotes, defends and implements the Affordable Care Act (ACA) at the state and federal levels. As part of that work, we are leading the charge to protect Medicare and Medicaid. We believe in creating jobs, not cutting programs people depend on.
We run comprehensive issue campaigns that mobilize people at the grassroots and define the public debate. HCAN work to protect, implement and improve the new health care law through national and state-based legislative and regulatory campaigns relying on grassroots action, public education, aggressive communications, policy analysis and ground-breaking research. We have become a respected voice and national leader on health care while continuing to focus on aggressive field activity in battleground and other priority states to build support for our issues and shape the politics for 2012.
