Over half of individuals in the U.S. covered by Medicaid come from communities of color. The program also insures over 10 million people with disabilities. As a result, state Medicaid agencies and their partners can play a major role in advancing health equity and improving primary care for communities that experience inequities in care and services.
This webinar, made possible by The Commonwealth Fund, will explore how state health equity goals can be advanced by Medicaid-led efforts that promote equity through managed care programs, and at the provider level through initiatives supported by broader delivery system and payment reforms. The 60-minute event includes perspectives from Michigan’s Medicaid director and representatives from Southern Jamaica Plain Health Center, a community health center in Boston, Massachusetts.
Health care policymakers, state officials, and other interested stakeholders are invited to join this event.
