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.

A new report by the Georgetown University Center for Children and Families identifies ways to improve children’s health care coverage, access to care, and care quality. It focuses on HUSKY Health, the state’s name for Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program, which covers more than 330,000 children and adolescents and is the largest single source of children’s health coverage in the state.
This NYSHealth report takes a look at a funding initiative to support Community Health Centers in New York State to take practical steps to care for more patients, expand existing sites, establish new sites, and/or increase the range of services provided, including behavioral health, dental, optometry, and pharmacy.
