The Pennsylvania Health Access Network: Fighting to Protect and Expand Coverage to all Pennsylvanians
The Pennsylvania Health Access Network (PHAN) is a statewide coalition of organizations working to protect high quality health insurance coverage for individuals and businesses and to expand coverage to the uninsured.
PHAN is working with local organizations and communities across the Commonwealth to turn public anxiety about declining health care coverage into a sustained public voice for reform. PHAN works to promote change at the state and national level by mobilizing affected constituencies, including consumers, health care providers, business, labor, the faith community, and the general public to press for a more accessible and affordable health care system.
The coalition participates in the Consumer Voices for Coverage initiative of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, which supports state advocacy efforts by fostering strong and robust advocacy infrastructures. The vision of Consumer Voices for Coverage is to enhance the critical role that advocates play in shaping and promoting comprehensive health reform. This $15 million initiative strengthens existing advocacy networks in 12 states, including Pennsylvania. Community Catalyst, a national non-profit consumer health advocacy organization headquartered in Boston, coordinates the effort nationwide.
- To expand access for the uninsured in Pennsylvania;
- To make comprehensive quality, affordable health care reform a major policy issue and;
- To reform the private insurance system so that people have greater access to care.
