Who We Are
Unite Behind Change
At United States of Care, we are listening to people’s needs, developing policy solutions, and partnering with others to ensure our health care system works for everyone.
United States of Care is committed to creating an equitable, inclusive, and accessible health care system for all, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender identity, religion, socioeconomic status, age, ability, location, sexual orientation, and additional intersecting identities.
We recognize that health care disparities stem from systematic, institutional, and historical barriers. Our mission is to dismantle these barriers and foster a just, equitable, and responsive health care system.
We ground our work in the principle of ‘listening loudly.’ While continuously looking for common areas for improvement, we center the insights and experiences of persons most impacted by systemic health care barriers, particularly people of color, individuals in rural areas, and those with low incomes.
As we address each issue, we aim to intentionally understand and respond to the needs of the most affected communities. This approach is central to our United Solutions of Care agenda for reform, which includes advocating for an affordable, dependable, personalized health care system that people can understand.
Our organization continuously seeks to address disparities through policies and practices, both internally and externally. We prioritize partnering with underrepresented communities, acknowledging their experiences, and centering their voices. We believe a system that meets the needs of historically underserved communities will work for everyone.
We respect the unique needs, experiences, and strengths of all individuals and communities in our work. We understand that the journey toward health equity is ongoing, and we are dedicated to learning, evolving, and making sustained efforts toward this goal.
We invite all who share our vision to join us as we collectively strive to build a health care system that acknowledges and addresses disparities and empowers every individual with the care they deserve, forging a path towards a healthier, more compassionate, and truly inclusive nation.
We’re pioneering a new approach to drive change that will make a difference in people’s lives.
We believe that in order to have a health care system where everyone can access quality affordable health care, we must start by listening to people and include them at every step of change. From understanding people’s needs, to policy innovation and design, to pushing for change through our state and federal efforts, USofCare is putting people FIRST.
We’re building a better health care system by employing a unique cross-sector approach to prioritizing, creating and advancing policies that meet the needs of people and result in a more equitable health care system.
There is nothing more serious. There’s nothing that has more importance than access to health care in our country.Andy Slavitt Co-Founder of United States of Care and Board Chair Emeritus
To Improve Health Care, We Need Bipartisan Solutions
Dr. Lisa Fitzpatrick, M.D. and Founder of Grapevine Health, discusses the importance of understanding the challenges of accessibility and affordability, why health care should not be a political issue, and the need for more bipartisan solutions.
2020 Annual Report
When 2020 began, we could have never predicted all that would lie ahead. No one could. We faced a year of a pandemic that’s claimed more than 700,000 lives.
USofCare is proud of what we accomplished in 2020 — what we accomplished not just in spite of the trials the year held, but because of them.
