We are the United Patient Voice.
More than 133 million Americans live with a chronic disease or disability – many without effective treatments or a cure. We are working to change this.

State Exchange Progress Reports
State-specific progress reports assess how well a state's insurance market is designed to meet the needs of people with chronic diseases and disabilities.
21st Century Cures
Congress launched the 21st Century Cures initiative to advance the development of better treatments and cures for unmet medical needs. Issues championed by the NHC are included in the initiative.

Making the Patient Voice Part of the Health Care Value Debate
What does value in health care mean from the patient perspective? The NHC released a Patient-Centered Value Model Rubric to help stakeholders capture what patients value by engaging people with chronic disease and disabilities in a meaningful and continuous way.
