About Us

Doctor gives young patient high five

HEAL California is about having a healthcare system that keeps us well while compassionately taking care of us when we’re not.

This is far from what we have. When we most need help, we face endless paperwork, sky-high costs and a faceless, unresponsive non-system. Everything is way harder and more expensive than it needs to be.

We need a simple, paperless, coordinated, affordable, transparent and accessible system.

That way, health care would be easy to get, easy to use and available to everyone – a public service, like the fire department, not a business.

We can do this! Working together, we can change anything – even our broken and expensive healthcare system.

The perfect place to start is “California” and the perfect time is “Now!”

Join our online advocacy community and together, let’s HEAL California!


HEAL California (Healthcare Equality At Last – California) is a project of the California OneCare Education Fund, a 501c3. Our board members – all volunteers – are dedicated to winning high-quality, affordable, comprehensive and fair healthcare for every one.
