Healthcare Equality and Affordability League

Mission Statement

The Massachusetts Healthcare Equality and Affordability League (H.E.A.L.) is committed to ensuring that every community has access to high-quality, affordable healthcare. Our mission is to eliminate disparities in healthcare payments that are driving up your premiums and threatening the quality of care at your local community hospital. Through education and advocacy we will work to ensure that the healthcare system works for everyone.

In a first-of-its-kind effort in New England, a major health care system and a union representing many of its front-line workers have come together to launch the Massachusetts Healthcare Equality and Affordability League.  Through H.E.A.L., Steward Health Care and 1199SEIU members have joined forces to fix the current reimbursement disparities in our health care system that are threatening access to quality care.
