National Coalition on Health Care

The National Coalition on Health Care (NCHC) was formed more than two decades ago to help achieve comprehensive health system change and is currently led by John Rother. We are a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization of organizations. Our growing Coalition represents more than 80 participating organizations, including medical societies, businesses, unions, health care providers, faith-based associations, pension and health funds, insurers, and groups representing consumers, patients, women, minorities and persons with disabilities. Collectively, our organizations represent, as employees, members or congregants, more than 100 million Americans. Our members are our strength. The diversity of our highly respected member organizations, their experienced leadership and their substantive expertise make the Coalition a powerful voice in the health policymaking community. Since its creation in 1990, NCHC has consistently advanced health system change to improve the accessibility, affordability, quality and cost-effectiveness of care.
