Focus On Health Reform - GIH Skip Navigation

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.

November 2017

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) increased the number of people with health insurance, leading to greater demand on providers for health care services. In this Robert Wood Johnson Foundation funded publication, authors from the Urban Institute interview health care stakeholders in five communities that saw some of the largest percent increases in numbers of insured people (Detroit, Mich.; Lexington, Ky.; Sacramento, Calif.; Spokane, Wash.; and Morgantown, W. Va.) give insight into how providers are responding to this increased demand.
