Universal Health Care Foundation of Connecticut testifies in public forums to make sure policymakers hear the consumer’s voice when making decisions that affect access to quality, affordable, equitable health care for Connecticut residents. 

Legislative Advocacy

The Foundation provides written and in-person testimony at Connecticut State Legislature on proposed legislation that impacts health care in the state.  We have testified on issues such as Medicaid, private insurance, pharmaceutical prices, improving the state’s health care system, as well as in opposition of polices that move us backwards.

We focus on how proposed policies will impact everyday people’s health, wallets, well-being, and security.

Administrative Advocacy

Year-round, the Foundation speaks up at public meetings and hearings to make sure that people are represented in important health care decisions.  This includes raising the voice of people like you at Access Health CT (state health care exchange) Board Meetings, the Health Care Cabinet, and Certificate of Need hearings on hospital sales.
