Health Care for Maine

The member organizations of Health Care for Maine (HC4ME) believe that every person in Maine should have access to high quality health care at a cost they can afford.


  • Access to the complete continuum of evidence-based health care services, including preventive, acute, chronic and long-term care, that is assured through comprehensive health care coverage
  • Affordable health care coverage that is guaranteed for all, taking into account an individual's ability to pay
  • Fostering greater transparency throughout our health care system to support informed decisions by consumers, providers and policymakers
  • Developing public and private payment systems that reward quality evidence-based care and results while prioritizing preventive and primary care for all
  • Ensuring a strong consumer voice in decision-making at all levels and in all forums
  • Fostering and facilitating communication and collaboration with diverse interest groups and constituencies around common goals
