A message from Maine AllCare:

We want to thank all of the nurses, doctors, healthcare workers, public health experts, and scientists for rising to the occasion in these extraordinary times. There are no words to adequately express our gratitude. May you stay well, and may we reach a better healthcare system on the other side of this crisis.

Who we are...

Maine AllCare promotes the establishment of publicly funded healthcare coverage for all Maine residents. This system must be efficient, financially sound, politically sustainable and must provide benefits fairly distributed to all.

Maine AllCare advocates that healthcare, a basic necessity, be treated as a public good, since it is fundamental to our well-being as individuals and as a democratic nation.

We are a non-profit, non-partisan organization established in 2010 as a chapter of Physicians for a National Health Program.

Our Key Principles:

Better for you, better for your community, better for the economy...
Universal Coverage

Every Maine resident is enrolled in the same system, regardless of health status, age, gender, place of residence, employment status or health history.

Cost Constraint

Reasonable prices are negotiated with pharmaceutical companies, providers, and suppliers of medical goods. Savings are seen from eliminating the current for-profit system.

Publicly Funded

Every Maine resident contributes based on graduated taxes, which replace premiums. Bankruptcies due to medical expenses are eliminated.
