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 finding ways to reduce costs while improving health care quality and addressing the social and economic factors that influence health. Via delivery system and payment reform, the government has ample opportunities to bolster efficiency and quality in health care.
