HLA is committed to ensuring universal access to quality health care in Massachusetts, particularly for those who are most at risk due to such factors as race, gender, disability, age, or geographic location. With its partner organization, Health Care For All, HLA combines legal expertise with grassroots organizing and policy reform to advance the statewide movement for universal health care access.
While HLA believes that everyone has the right to the health care they need and deserve, HLA can only provide assistance to people who cannot afford a private lawyer. To be eligible for our services, household income should not exceed 300% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL). More information about our intake procedure and FPL guidelines based on family size can be viewed here.

Denials of coverage by private health insurance plans
Denials of coverage by government programs such as MassHealth
Large medical bills that are not covered by insurance
Among our priority areas are:
Improving access to mental health and substance use care
