Action Network

The following organizations actively collaborate with FHCE to assist uninsured Americans with understanding their public and private health coverage options.

American Cancer Society

“FHCE provides a valuable service to uninsured callers who call the American Cancer Society’s National Cancer Information Center searching for ways to pay for their cancer care. Cancer Information Specialists at the NCIC provide callers with general cancer information and access to local cancer resources such as support groups, patient services and local social services. These resources are crucial to helping patients and their families cope with the physical, psychological, and emotional challenges of a cancer diagnosis. Now, they will also forward uninsured callers to FHCE’s live help line of trained counselors.” – Kevin Babb, Strategic Director, American Cancer Society

American Diabetes Association

“The American Diabetes Association’s Center for Information and Community Support is proud to work with the Foundation for Health Coverage Education. Together, we ensure that our constituents are armed with the information they need to receive adequate health coverage, and to stop diabetes.” – Lee Barona, Former Director, Center for Information and Community Support, American Diabetes Association.

American Lung Association

“The Foundation for Health Coverage Education offers a valuable service to people when they need it the most. The American Lung Association is grateful that we are able to work together to provide information on health coverage options to uninsured patients with lung disease and their families” – Katherine Pruitt, Asst. Vice President, Program Services, American Lung Association

American Heart Association
