About Health Care for All – Minnesota

Health Care for All Minnesota (HCA-MN) is dedicated to promoting affordable high quality healthcare for every Minnesotan through advocacy, education and community organizing.

We believe healthcare is an essential human need and that unequal access to healthcare is an injustice. It is  critical to remove the excessive profit motive from healthcare. We believe a financial system where premiums are based on ability to pay is the only way we can provide comprehensive, affordable, high quality healthcare for every person.
