- Foundations Helping Consumers Find Their Way
March 21, 2019
Ann McMillan, Grantmakers In Health
Health foundations have long supported the essential work that connects consumers to health insurance coverage. After the passage of the ACA, foundations put that experience to work to promote consumer awareness and uptake of the new coverage options. This scan of the field explores the myriad ways in which health philanthropy supported consumer assistance related to health insurance coverage in the years following the passage of the ACA, the challenges that arose during the course of that work, and the opportunities that foundations capitalized on. The scan includes results from a survey of 47 GIH Funding Partner organizations and also features in-depth interviews with five foundations investing in consumer assistance. This publication shares key findings to inform funders as they strategize about the next generation of work.

The survey results have been compiled into a one-page summary infographic.
