California Health Care Foundation


The California Health Care Foundation (CHCF) is leading the way to better care for all Californians, particularly those whose needs are not well served by the status quo. CHCF works to ensure that people have access to the care they need, when they need it, at a price they can afford. CHCF informs policymakers and industry leaders, invests in ideas and innovations, and connects with change-makers to create a more responsive, patient-centered health care system.

CHCF supports policies and care models that ensure patient choices are honored through implementation of advance care planning and Physician Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment (POLST), as well as expansion of access to palliative care.
