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.

The California Health Care Foundation has compiled a select list of organizational statements and comments submitted to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) by national health care and philanthropic organizations in opposition to the proposed changes to the public charge rule. DHS is accepting comments on the rule change through December 10, 2018, after which time the agency is required to review and respond to comments prior to finalizing the rule. So far, DHS has received over 132,000 comments on the proposed regulation.
A new Commonwealth Fund report by Leighton Ku and colleagues at George Washington University. According to experts on previous work programs for Medicaid and public assistance enrollees, the current crop of work demonstration programs is poorly designed and resourced, and unlikely to help many people find work or become healthier.
