Kaiser Health News
KFF Health News is a non-profit news service committed to in-depth coverage of health care policy and politics, and starting with Season 2 of An Arm and a Leg, they have been our production partner, providing financial and editorial support.
KFF Health News is a project of KFF, which was known until 2023 as the Kaiser Family Foundation , and is not affiliated with the giant health care provider Kaiser Permanente. They do share a common ancestor, 20th-Century industrialist Henry Kaiser, which is a fun story you can learn more about on this page, all about our partnership.
Briefly: KFF Health News is an amazing news organization, and I am so happy and proud to be working with them.
If An Arm and a Leg has you saying, “Where can I get a ton of expertly-reported, no-B.S. coverage of the U.S. health care system ?” … then you will find everything you’re looking for at kffhealthnews.org.
Public Narrative is a non-profit that uses training and storytelling to elevate public discourse and promote democracy. It trains both non-profits and journalists, and it supports journalism on subjects (like the cost of health care) that are not fully-covered by existing outlets.
Public Narrative serves as our fiscal sponsor, which means donations made through them are tax-deductible.
Our very first supporters: The Chicago AWESOME Foundation
Trustees in each chapter put up their own money and choose grantees. They were the first to commit money to An Arm and a Leg.
We are grateful for a $1,000 grant from the Chicago AWESOME Foundation.
