Access to Healthcare


HWCLI works to advance the four components that make up access to health care: affordability, acceptability of services, physical accessibility, and supply of services. HWCLI continuously analyzes local, state and federal health care policies to increase access to health insurance options and enrollment, affordable health care at Long Island’s Federally Qualified Health Centers and integrated service delivery to improve community health outcomes.
