Advancing Equitable, Affordable Healthcare

Addressing healthcare affordability is necessary, now more than ever, for expanding coverage and making care more accessible to a wider population. The CHRONIC Care Act empowered payers to build innovative benefits to encourage preventive care and advance social determinants of health for equity. Today, taking on rising healthcare costs, price and service transparency, and equity considerations are non-negotiables in the shift to value-based care. What do pilots and the latest data reveal about enacting equitable change in communities and how improvements to quality of life yield health, access and savings?

Hear about cutting-edge solutions, unique collaborations and new models for enabling a more level playing field, reducing access barriers and health disparities, and meeting the health needs of underserved individuals.
