Focus On Health Reform - GIH Skip Navigation

Health Reform

Health reform involves extending insurance coverage and restructuring the health care delivery system to focus on prevention and primary care, reducing costs, and improving quality. Foundations are well positioned to help by educating consumers, supporting state implementation, transforming the safety net, expanding the health care workforce, and supporting innovations for high-cost patients.

In 2010 GIH established the GIH Health Reform Resource Center Fund, which allows GIH to increase staff resources and programming in order to inform and connect funders supporting work related to health reform.

In a new Commonwealth Fund post, authors from Georgetown University's Center on Health Insurance Reforms find that state insurance departments' efforts to regulate these plans and protect consumers from poor-quality coverage and abusive sales tactics may be undermined by a loophole: many short-term plans are being sold through out-of-state associations that are exempt from state regulation.
