Pennsylvania Health Access Network
Stronger Voices for Better Health…
The Pennsylvania Health Access Network (PHAN) is a statewide coalition working to improve the quality and accessibility of the Commonwealth's health coverage options. Strengthening consumer voices in health equity discussions since 2007, PHAN focuses on rural and underserved communities. PHAN educates consumers, advocates, and organizations on policy issues that enhance the value, affordability, and outcomes of healthcare delivery. Building capacity in enrollment, PHAN provides technical assistance, training, and coordination to regional and statewide assister groups. As Navigators and certified application counselors, PHAN has enrolled nearly 3,000 people in coverage across two thirds of the state’s counties through the Health Insurance Marketplace, Medical Assistance, and CHIP, and works with the newly insured to be engaged, informed consumers. PHAN also runs two statewide helplines for consumers and assisters.
