A Brand New Office and Brand New Brand

September 19, 2014

It’s fall and that means it’s a season of change. Health Care For All is moving its office. After September 20th, you can find us at One Federal Street, Boston, 02110! 

We are also opening our celebration of the 30th Anniversary of Health Care For All. The anniversary has us reflect on some of the major victories that Health Care For All has won over the course of three decades. Again and again, the work of HCFA has led Massachusetts to lead the country in health care:

The universal coverage law in 1988 under Governor Dukakis. The expansions in Medicaid to form MassHealth, and new help for prescription drugs for seniors. Patient protections in managed care plans, and ending pre-existing conditions exclusions for groups and individual plans. More kids enrolled in coverage. Landmark health care reform under Governor Romney, providing a model for the Affordable Care Act signed by President Obama. The 2012 comprehensive payment and delivery system reform law, changing the focus of our system towards value and health.

We are proud of this week's census report that we still lead the nation in health coverage, including virtually universal coverage for children.

The policy victories have been coordinated with a best-in-the-nation HelpLine and outreach and education effort, integrated with our policy work.

We have come a long, long way in 30 years. But, there's still lots more to do.

To mark this occasion, and to mark our move, today we are unveiling a brand new logo.

Our new logo reflects the Massachusetts focus of the work we do to bring quality, affordable health care to all people in the Bay State. We are a truly statewide organization. We help answer questions from all corners of the Commonwealth on our HelpLine. This fall we will again knock on doors to reach out to hundreds of thousands of our neighbors to make sure they get covered.

Today, the 30 Winter Street team of Health Care For All, Health Law Advocates, and Community Catalyst are busy packing up to move to One Federal Street. Our phone numbers and emails will stay the same. And so will our determination to work for three more decades of health care advocacy, education and service for access to quality, affordable care - for all.
