In late 2019, Maine AllCare’s Board of Directors voted to establish a separate entity— Maine Health Care Action (MCHA)— to proceed with a ballot initiative since Maine AllCare’s tax status limits our ability to fund ballot measures. Maine Health Care Action submitted ballot language to the Secretary of State’s Office and received approval for a petition entitled “Resolve, Directing the Development of Legislation Establishing a Publicly Funded System of Health Care Coverage for All Maine Residents.” Please visit the MHCA website for more information and to volunteer to help.
