Focus On Access - GIH Skip Navigation

Access

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.

Earlier this month, Kentucky became the first state to gain approval to launch a demonstration that will make employment an eligibility requirement for Medicaid. Shortly after HHS’s approval of Kentucky’s proposal, attorneys representing 15 Kentucky Medicaid beneficiaries filed a federal lawsuit against the HHS secretary to have the work policies declared unlawful and any work on the Kentucky demonstration halted. Sara Rosenbaum, Harold and Jane Hirsh Professor of Health Law and Policy, Milken Institute School of Public Health at the George Washington University, analyzes the situation in this Commonwealth Fund publication.
