Mission: Stronger Voices for Better Health
Vision: All Pennsylvanians have high quality, affordable, and equitable health coverage options.
The Pennsylvania Health Access Network (PHAN) is a statewide consumer-driven organization working to improve the quality and accessibility of the Commonwealth's health coverage options. Strengthening consumer voices in health equity discussions since 2007, PHAN focuses on rural and underserved communities. PHAN educates consumers, advocates, and organizations on policy issues that enhance the value, affordability, and outcomes of healthcare delivery. PHAN provides technical assistance, training, and coordination to regional and statewide groups. As navigators, PHAN has enrolled nearly 7,000 people in coverage in 51 of 67 counties through the Health Insurance Marketplace, Medical Assistance, and CHIP, and works with the newly insured to be engaged, informed consumers. PHAN runs a statewide consumer helpline. PHAN has a proven track record of leading effective campaigns and coalitions around key consumer issues, including Cover the Commonwealth for Medicaid Expansion, Housing as Health for supportive housing services in Medicaid, and Insure PA to ensure coverage gains and our health care safety net, including Medicaid, continue to receive support.
