Building an Equitable Health Care Delivery System: Federal and State Strategies

Bookmark and Share

Policymakers at the federal and state levels are working to develop strategies to address the health disparities that persist in the U.S. and promote health equity across geographic, racial/ethnic, and socioeconomic divisions. This webinar on April 2 will discuss how state and federal policymakers can strengthen their efforts to achieve health equity by coordinating with one another to align payment models, create new partnerships, and build infrastructure and data systems to reduce health disparities. State leaders from Ohio and Louisiana will describe several initiatives supporting health equity and the federal programs they are leveraging to support their efforts. An official from the Centers for Medicaid & Medicare Services (CMS) will describe federal resources available to help states advance health equity and identify opportunities for better alignment of federal and state activities.
