WV Citizen Action Education Fund (WV CAEF) is a statewide 501(c)3 non-profit organization that provides original research and public education on progressive solutions to the challenges facing the people of Appalachia. We're a coalition partner with the Health Care for All WV campaign, and have been working to expand health care access and coverage to West Virginians for decades.

  • Are co-pays, out of pocket expenses, or prescription drug prices overwhelming? Have you had to put off treatment or refills because of the cost?
  • Are you living with little to no HEALTH CARE coverage? Are you struggling to stay healthy enough to work?
  • Have you experienced the Medicaid Cliff effect, where you found out you’ve worked too many hours or earned too much and then lost your coverage?
  • Have you benefited from the ACA, Medicare, Medicaid?

Please, consider sharing your WV Health Care Story. Decisionmakers won’t know our struggles unless we tell them.
