Consumer Health Coalition (CHC) is dedicated to inspiring a consumer movement to advance health and enhance access to quality, affordable health care.

We further our mission by targeting populations that are at-risk for experiencing barriers to good health and health care. This includes people with low incomes, the uninsured and underinsured, and underserved populations.



 With legislators vowing to repeal the Affordable Care Act without offering any replacement plan, now is the time to speak out. We are dedicated to representing your voices and fighting for the protections that improve your health care.

You can join the fight to protect our health care.

How does Consumer Health Coalition “inspire a consumer movement?”

Some of our most experienced advocates meet monthly on the Health Committee for People with Disabilities (HCPD) to work for self and systemic advocacy. Our advocacy work also includes additional task forces, letters to the editor, legislative visits, and more. Find more information on the calendar in the right column and throughout the website. All are welcome to get involved!
