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.
Contact Ann McMillan for more information about our programming in this area.
This is the second blog in a series to highlight the dangers of the repealing the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Community Catalyst will regularly highlight a different constituency to draw attention to the benefits the ACA has afforded them and to outline what a loss of coverage would mean. This blog discusses the impact on rural communities, including the possibility of saving vulnerable communities from rural hospital closures.
CBO reports on the estimated changes in health insurance coverage and premiums that would result from leaving the Affordable Care Act’s insurance market reforms in place while repealing the law’s mandate penalties and subsidies.
