Affordable Healthcare We Can Count On

Since our founding, HCAN has been fighting to ensure that everyone, no matter where they live or what they look like, has access to quality, affordable healthcare. In addition to protecting and expanding the Affordable Care Act, we’ll continue to take on insurance corporations that rake in profits at the expense of our health, press for policies that reduce racial and gender health disparities, and push lawmakers to address the current gaps in mental health care, home based community care for older Americans and people with disabilities, and access to healthcare in rural communities. In the United States, we should all have access to affordable coverage and quality care without going into debt, forgoing treatments or suffering hardship to get the services we need.
