The Health Care for America Now Education Fund (HCANEF) is a non-partisan public education campaign to help people from all walks of life understand how health care policies and laws impact their lives. At HCANEF, we provide information and support to grassroots groups, patient advocates, lawmakers, and others about Medicare, Medicaid, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and reproductive health issues. We help connect the dots between healthcare, economic security, the social and environmental determinants of health in order to bring together constituents and improve our health system by increasing access, limiting profit and addressing disparities.
