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.
A new report by the Urban Institute demonstrates the benefits of leveraging the connections between tax filing and health coverage enrollment. The report also outlines other strategies that would allow tax preparation services to further help people get covered and stay covered, such as secure data transmission between tax preparation services and the marketplace and facilitating the payment of marketplace premiums with tax refunds.
This New York State Health Foundation report takes a look at the lessons learned from NYSHealth’s Enrollment Network, a statewide initiative supporting community-based organizations to conduct outreach and enrollment activities targeting populations known to be uninsured at disproportionately high rates.
