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.
My Voice, My Health is a new health insurance literacy campaign by Raising Women’s Voices for the Health Care We Need, which is a national initiative working to make sure women’s voices are heard and our concerns are addressed as the AffordableCare Act (ACA) is implemented. This effort is supported in part by The David and Lucile Packard Foundation and the Ford Foundation.
With the third open-enrollment period for marketplace health insurance plans well under way, a new Commonwealth Fund issue brief takes a look at changes designed to increase transparency and enhance consumer protections in qualified plans.
