National Coalition on Health Care (NCHC)
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.
They are a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization of organizations. The 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, the organizations represent, as employees, members or congregants, more than 100 million Americans.
The members are their strength. The diversity of the 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.
