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.

Maintaining the Health Care Safety Net

As the health system shifts to new payment models, we know that financially vulnerable residents including the uninsured and underinsured will suffer disproportionately from a lack of access to care. Given this transition and the COVID-19 pandemic, it is especially important to ensure the continued viability of the health care safety net system in the state. This is a statewide funding opportunity to support communications, community education, advocacy efforts, and research and evaluation that help maintain the viability of the health care safety net system.
