Why Give to NoHLA?

Your support allows NoHLA to be the voice for consumers in the healthcare debate. With your help, we can continue to provide high quality analysis, training, and representation to individuals and community groups as we work hard to protect and enhance access to health care coverage and services. Your donation strengthens NoHLA’s role as a key organization supporting health care access for Washington residents. Here are some examples of the recent work we were able to do with your help:

  • Health Reform implementation: NoHLA has played a key role in improving Washington’s Medicaid expansion and Exchange, leading to better coordination and access — enabling many more people to be insured.
  • Contraceptive coverage advocacy with insurers: NoHLA issued a groundbreaking “secret shopper” report finding that insurers gave women inaccurate information on contraceptives now covered at no cost. In response, many insurers took corrective action, improving access to coverage.
  • Searchable appeals database: NoHLA successfully advocated for a database of decisions when consumers appealed health insurers’ denials of coverage. It’s now available at

Thank you for helping us to improve healthcare access for everyone!
