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 issue brief, the Georgetown University Health Policy Institute surveyed officials with the state-based marketplaces about the assistance and outreach strategies they view as most effective and the factors they believe are affecting sign-ups on the insurance exchanges. The authors’ findings reveal the value of in-person outreach and assistance, especially in overcoming the numerous barriers to enrollment, including a lack of awareness among consumers about their insurance options and the availability of financial assistance, as well as the complexities of choosing suitable coverage. Survey respondents also stressed the importance of improving website functionality and adding features to support consumer decisionmaking.
