What We're Doing

Expanding affordable health coverage

We are dedicated to bolstering affordable, high-quality health coverage options. By building on the Affordable Care Act, closing the Medicaid coverage gap, and developing progressive solutions for a world in which everyone can access care.

Advancing public health and equity

We are working to reduce health inequities and advance health in all communities that permeate the health care system at every level and foster disparate outcomes.

Lowering health costs for consumers

We are working to advance health in all communities and reduce health inequities that foster disparate outcomes. This includes addressing the significant vulnerabilities in our public health system to ensure that it is more resilient and ready to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic and future health threats.”
