United Way for Southeastern Michigan works to achieve greater quality of life for our community, and access to healthcare is essential in reaching this goal. Since the passage of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) in 2010, more than 800,000 Michigan residents have gained essential health coverage.

Tell lawmakers to protect affordable healthcare coverage.
