History and Leadership

Health Care For All (HCFA) was founded in 1982 [10] to advocate at the federal, state, and local level for government-funded health care programs. HCFA supported Massachusetts’ state-government takeover of health care in 2006 in 2012. [11]

Amy Rosenthal has been the executive director of Health Care For All (HCFA) since 2017. [12] She is a lecturer at the Harvard University School of Public Health and has previously worked at the left-of-center Community Catalyst, which advocates to change hospitals from nonprofit to for-profit status; [13] the left-progressive feminist Barbara Lee Family Foundation; [14] and for the failed gubernatorial campaign of Myrth York (D-RI). [15]

Activities and Funding

Health Care For All (HCFA) advocates on various health care issues in Massachusetts, including expansion of the state’s government-run health care plan to illegal immigrants, [16] opposing enforcement of immigration laws, [17] supporting prescription drug reform, expanding child health services, [18] and advocating for patient-family advisory councils, [19] dental care, and other issues. [20]

HCFA works in conjunction with its partner organization Health Law Advocates (HLA) to lead the Immigrant Health Care Access Coalition (IHAC). [21] [22] This group opposes deportation of illegal immigrants and supports extension of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) and the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), programs which provide de-facto or explicit amnesty for certain classes of otherwise-illegal immigrants currently in the United States. [23]

HCFA supports the far-left Black Lives Matter movement and has said U.S. health care systems are “riddled with structural racism.” [24]
