Fighting for the health care system of our future.
Health Law & Policy Focus Areas
Health Care Access and Coverage
The Center for Health Law and Policy Innovation’s (CHLPI’s) Health Care Access and Coverage portfolio seeks to ensure that individuals with lower incomes can access the care and treatment they need to live their lives to the fullest. CHLPI’s work in this area broadly focuses on filling the gaps in our fragmented health care system while working towards a more equitable solution for the future.
At the national level, we monitor and analyze health law and policy proposals from the executive and legislative branches and assess their likely impact, particularly on systemically marginalized communities and people living with chronic illness. We lead the development and implementation of strategic responses, often in concert with national coalitions and networks. At the state and regional levels, CHLPI provides training and technical assistance to a range of stakeholders and monitors the private insurance marketplaces for key coverage and cost trends. Across this portfolio, we build the capacity of HIV and other health care advocates and communities to ensure that all stakeholders have the tools necessary to inform health policy that impacts access to care.
