The staff of Health Care For All work with federal, state, and local officials to improve our health care system. The organization leads, convenes, and participates in many coalitions that work on specific health care issues. Health Care For All’s campaigns have a history of success. From Massachusetts health reform in 2006 to payment and delivery system reform in 2012 and beyond, Health Care For All has played an important role in catalyzing meaningful change. While Health Care For All staff collaborates with key decision-makers, the organization believes that real power comes from the bottom-up. Health Care For All is organizing — person by person — to develop new health care leaders who can drive change in our health care system.
Health Care For All uses a variety of strategies and tools to achieve its mission including direct service support, policy development, coalition building, community organizing, public education, and outreach.
The Health Care For All HelpLine fields thousands of calls every year from individuals and families who have questions about or need help connecting to health coverage. Health Care For All’s skilled and compassionate HelpLine counselors work to answer health insurance questions, troubleshoot issues with state insurance programs, and make appropriate referrals. From the calls Health Care For All receives, trends are monitored and policy solutions are developed that aim to address the health care challenges of state residents.
