About Us

Campaign for Healthcare for Everyone – Louisiana is a diverse group that spans the gamut of healthcare stakeholders including health care providers, nonprofit organizations, consumer organizations, employers, civic groups, concerned citizens, and others who have come together for the specific purpose of engaging many different voices in support of expanding access to healthcare. It is a positive, proactive, non-partisan, issue-based campaign that works in an organized, coordinated, thoughtful fashion, serving as a cohesive voice for better access to healthcare for all Louisianans.

 

Everyone in Louisiana Deserves Healthcare
Extending healthcare coverage to low-to-moderate income Louisianans who are without health insurance now will help Louisiana have and maintain a healthier workforce. Fewer people will be forced to seek more costly medical care in emergency rooms and forgo preventive care and treatment for chronic conditions. In Louisiana, with the exception of pregnant women, adults without children are ineligible for Medicaid at any income level and the income eligibility for parents is extremely low.
Campaign for Healthcare for Everyone – Louisiana is working through its members and supporters to educate the general public, members of the media, community and civic leaders, and public officials about the need for better access to healthcare and what it means for Louisiana.
