Donate to Consumer Health First

For 10 years, operating as the Maryland Women's Coalition for Health Care Reform, we have ensured that the voices of consumers are heard and their needs met as our state implements health care reform. A key effort has been implementation of the landmark Federal law – The Affordable Care Act.  Our work is far from done. The reality is that it is just beginning as we move to a complete transformation with delivery system and payment reforms.


To ensure that we are in the best position to address these new challenges and opportunities we have undertaken our own transformation process with a new sustainable, 501(c)(3) structure under a new name – Consumer Health First. The name says it all - we will put the consumer first as we address the areas of access, quality and equity.  

We can't do this alone. We need the help of all those who have a stake in the success of Maryland's health care reform initiatives. Please donate now!
