Plan Development

A Public-Private Partnership for
Health Care for All Marylanders

In 2002, we released our first Health Care for All! Plan.  Ever since, we have taken major steps towards our Health Care for All goal using this plan as our core planning document.  Three years ago, we decided it was time to update the Plan to reflect changes in the health care environment both in Maryland and nationally.

To help us draft a sound and fiscally responsible plan, the Initiative actively sought help from national and state policy experts from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, University of Maryland Law School, and the University of Maryland, College Park.

Based on the input from

  • 10 public town meetings held around the state,
  • two years of meetings with state and local organizations, doctors, nurses, social workers, hospitals, safety net providers, government officials, and advocates for the disabled, mental health, children, the homeless, and
  • three years of debate with experts,

we released our updated plan.  It is the most feasible, detailed and economically sound health reform plan ever proposed in Maryland.  This plan, released in November 2008, will serve as our Coalition’s blueprint as we move forward to get Marylanders the health care they need.
