Decreasing Health Disparities: Data Collection and Analysis

The shift to Medicaid managed care and new value-based care arrangements in the state could improve health outcomes for financially vulnerable residents or widen already steep racial and geographic disparities. To better understand the impact of these initiatives, the Trust will support data collection and analysis efforts that shed light on how low-income patients, especially racial and ethnic minorities, are faring as health care payment models change.

Application Deadline: Closed

Increasing Insurance Enrollment

Since the launch of subsidized Affordable Care Act insurance policies in 2014, the federal government, foundations, private insurers, and other stakeholders have supported enrollment assisters to provide guidance to the most vulnerable consumers. A better understanding of the costs and benefits of in-person assistance could prove helpful for sustainability and improving enrollment efforts. The Trust is interested in efforts to analyze the value and effectiveness of in-person, nonprofit enrollment assistance in Affordable Care Act insurance plans.
