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.

Recently, New Jersey and Pennsylvania have enacted laws to move away the federal marketplace to create their own state-based marketplaces to be operational by January 2021.
In this Health Affairs blog detailing Affordable Care Act litigation, the author reports that the courts have ordered a permanent injunction against the ACA’s contraceptive mandate. The ACA’s contraceptive mandate stems from the law’s requirement that non-grandfathered health insurance coverage and employer-sponsored group health plans cover preventive services without cost-sharing.
