PHLP is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization providing free legal services to people having trouble getting or keeping health coverage.

For more than two decades, we have worked tirelessly to advance the health care rights of our clients. We do this by providing legal representation to help clients keep Medicaid coverage and services; engaging in community education and outreach to consumers, advocates, and health care providers; and advocating for policies that best address our clients' healthcare needs and protect their legal rights.
