The philanthropic community has examined access from many angles, seeking to break down barriers created by costs, culture, geography, system structure, and differing notions about who and what should be covered by both public and private insurance. In this era of health reform, GIH is working to inform and connect health funders who are interested in ensuring that vulnerable people with problems accessing the health care system are able to get the care they need.

Through a strategic planning process in 2014, the Cone Health Foundation identified the need to expand access to integrated care, particularly for uninsured individuals. The foundation worked with local primary care and behavioral health providers to fund a 3-year learning collaborative of health care clinics to implement an integrated care model coordinating primary care, mental health, substance use, and oral health services for uninsured adults. Ultimately, the foundation sought to use this initiative to build capacity in participating clinics to deliver integrated care to 5,000 uninsured patients by 2020—a 10-fold increase over 5 years.
