HCFA 2009 Annual Report 
2009 Annual Report
HCFA 2009 Annual Report 
Health Care For All seeks to create a consumer-centered health care system that provides comprehensive, affordable, accessible, culturally competent, high quality care and consumer education for everyone, especially the most vulnerable. We work to achieve this as leaders in publi policy, advocacy, education and service to consumers in Massachusetts.
Dear Health Care For All Members and Supporters:By far, the most prominent characteristic of 2009 has been change. We began the year with a remarkable changein our country’s leadership, and ended poised on the brink of national health reform that will make a differencefor millions of people. The thread throughout Health Care For All’s work is our steadfast commitment to creat-ing a consumer-centered health care system that provides consumer education and affordable, culturally-compe-tent, and high quality health care for all.
Perhaps our greatest challenge has been navigating one of the most economically difcult years since the Great
Depression. HCFA is doing more with less. We are extremely fortunate to have a remarkable staff dedicated toour mission and to have a robust base of donors who believe in the value of our work who have stepped up to
provide us with nancial stability.HCFA continues to be on the cutting edge of social networking technology for non-prots. A Healthy Blog is a
recognized, invaluable resource. HCFAs Facebook page has more than two thousand fans, and the organizationhas joined the Twitter scene, introducing our work to new audiences and providing health policy updates andinsights in real time.Each day we confront the toughest challenges, yet we produce tangible results. Most recently we:
Staved off devastating state budget cuts to MassHealth;
Safeguarded children’s health care access and services in both public programs and private insurance;
Preserved and expanded oral health access;
 Activated consumers to reduce medical errors, promote public reporting, and ensure patient safety; and 
Hosted annual policy and organizing conference with over 300 participants eager to learn about healthdisparities.
In this Annual Report you will nd a brief summary of our diverse and ambitious work portfolio. We hope that
it will inspire you to join our efforts. These accomplishments would not be possible without your collaboration. Thank you for supporting Health Care For All.Sincerely,Chip Joffe-Halpern Amy Whitcomb Slemmer, Esq.President Executive Director
