Maryland Health Care For All!
The Maryland Citizens’ Health Initiative Education Fund (“MCHI”) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that was created in 1999 to educate all Marylanders about sound ways to achieve quality, affordable health care for all.
In order to create a comprehensive, economically sound health care for all plan, MCHI organized the state’s largest coalition and solicited input from coalition members and thousands of Maryland citizens in town hall meetings. National experts at the Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health and the University of Maryland Law School then worked to incorporate this community input into MCHI’s Health Care for All! Plan. In 2002, MCHI released its final plan and conducted a statewide campaign to educate people about how the plan would guarantee health care security for all Marylanders.
Over 1,100 faith, labor, business, health, and community organizations have joined the Health Care for All! Coalition to support enactment of MCHI’s plan. This is the largest coalition ever created in Maryland and certainly one of the largest health care consumer coalitions in the country.
