Asset 2

The Alameda Health Consortium advocates for health policies and new initiatives that increase access to health care for low-income and uninsured populations in the East Bay. We work with county, state, and federal elected officials to keep them informed about the impact of budget cuts and policies on community health center services. Join us in taking action and staying informed.

About Public Charge

On October 10, 2018, the current administration released a proposed rule to change “public charge” policies that govern how the use of public benefits may negatively affect individuals’ ability to obtain legal permanent resident (LPR) or “Green Card” status.

Protect Immigrants

We believe that everyone has a right to quality, affordable health care regardless of race, income or immigration status.  Disease and sickness recognize neither borders nor documentation. #Health4All makes for smart public health. Find resources and follow the issue for opportunities to take part.

Advocate for Health Center Funding

One way to get involved in supporting community health centers (CHCs) is to stand up for health center funding.  Tell your Members of Congress to fund CHCs with a long term solution.  Congress has failed to act in time.

Defend the Affordable Care Act

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) is working in California! Since the implementation of the ACA, Consortium member health centers have seen a 20 percent increase in the number of patients they serve.  This includes a 72 percent increase in Medicaid beneficiaries who for the first time had access to primary care.  In addition to access to quality medical, dental and behavioral health services, our patients now have peace of mind. Help us defend the ACA.
