ORGANIZATION: Health Care for All

Job Opportunities:  

- Helpline Counselor, and 

- Children's Health Policy Manager

ABOUT HEALTH CARE FOR ALL

Health Care For All (HCFA) is a state-based consumer health advocacy organization that is celebrating its 35th anniversary in 2020. HCFA’s mission is to advocate for health justice in Massachusetts by working to promote health equity and ensure coverage and access for all, and we are recognized as a national leader in this work.

HCFA focuses on expanding health care access, improving quality, and bringing down costs in Massachusetts through its leadership of and participation in numerous policy advocacy coalitions. These coalitions bring together a wide variety of organizations to work collaboratively 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 and families each year to enroll in and renew their health insurance and troubleshoot health coverage issues through our consumer assistance HelpLine. We use the health care access barriers that HelpLine callers report to inform our state-level health advocacy agenda.

 

The 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 (ACA). 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. Today, access to health care for the people of Massachusetts is under attack as the Federal Administration attempts to decimate the ACA, Medicaid and other health benefits. HCFA is, once again, leading the campaigns and coalitions necessary to defend the progress we have made in health care access, quality and affordability, while simultaneously working to make improvements on the state level.
