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.

Insurers implemented significant premium increases and reduced their marketplace participation in 2018 in response to federal policy uncertainty, according to a new report prepared by researchers at Georgetown University’s Center on Health Insurance Reforms and the Urban Institute, and funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. The report predicts higher prices and potentially more insurer withdrawals from the individual market in 2019.
