Health Reform

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.

Issue Spotlight

August 2017

Authors Linda Blumberg and John Holahan from the Urban Institute describe how nongroup markets can be improved with four strategies, which would require only a modest federal investment and which a broad array of policymakers across the political spectrum would find acceptable: Commit to paying the cost-sharing reductions, reinstitute a reinsurance program, continue to enforce the individual mandate, and finance outreach and enrollment assistance.

August 2017

In this Commonwealth Fund blog post, David Blumenthal and Sara Collins describe the immediate concern of stabilizing marketplaces. Three key proposals for Congress to consider include: cost-sharing reductions, "bare counties," and reinsurance.
