About Us

Michigan Universal Health Care Access Network (MICHUHCAN) is a state-wide network that promotes comprehensive health care for all and improved health outcomes by addressing the social determinants of health through education, strategy development and advocacy.

What we do:

1. Advocacy: Our diverse team of experts from medicine, law, and community organizations are a consistent voice for justice in Michigan health policy. They protect the rights of patients and health care consumers by advocating on policy committees and advisory boards across the state.

2. Education: We educate the public about how health care policy affects them and engage them to take action.

3. Strategy: We keep our network informed about the latest updates on health care reform by publishing brochures, newsletters, emails, and mobilize our members to take actions on key issues.


Mission Statement:

In fulfillment of our mission MICHUHCAN:

• Is a consistent voice for justice in health care and public policies that promote equitable health outcomes

• Advocates for increased health care access at the local, state and national level

• Works with diverse groups that adhere to the principles defining a health care system that is universal, available regardless of ability to pay, comprehensive, cost efficient; and that eliminates disparity in access and outcomes, provides parity for mental health care, provides continuity of care, insures quality through evidence-based care, protects consumer choice and is easy to use.

We believe that for reforms to be successful and sustainable they must advance the values of community, democracy and public accountability.
