Equitable Access to Care
Closing the Health Care Coverage Gap
We're supporting solutions to close the health care coverage gap so that all North Carolinians have equitable opportunities to be healthy and thrive.
Why access to care?
Equitable access to care leads to healthier communities.
Seventy years ago, Mrs. Reynolds charged the Trust to ensure that North Carolinians with low incomes have access to health care. Affordable access to health insurance is a vital piece of this work.
To improve health outcomes and narrow disparities, we support solutions for improved health insurance coverage, such as Medicaid expansion, Affordable Care Act enrollment, affordable access to medication, and affordable, convenient access to primary care, mental health care, substance use treatment, and oral care.

Expanding Medicaid in North Carolina

The report was prepared by researchers at The George Washington University with funding from Cone Health Foundation and the Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust.
