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.

Many navigator organizations responsible for helping consumers understand and sign up for health coverage in 2018 Affordable Care Act (ACA) marketplaces say steep federal funding reductions that recently took effect will likely force them to limit their geographic service area, cut back outreach and public education, lay off staff members, and curtail other assistance, according to a new Kaiser Family Foundation survey of such programs.
Uncertainty about federal support for the Affordable Care Act (ACA) continues to threaten enrollment and stability in the nongroup insurance markets. Targeted policies could fix the ACA’s problems without sacrificing its gains in coverage, affordability, and access to care. This publication from the Urban Institute describes policies that would stabilize the nongroup insurance markets, encourage insurer participation, improve affordability, and rein in premium growth.
