Monitoring the health care market to better implement reforms to increase coverage for the uninsured
The Foundation's program, State Coverage Initiatives, was designed to help states develop and implement policies that expand access to health insurance coverage. The primary objectives of this project are: (1) staff support for the State's interagency workgroup; (2) technical support for the New Hampshire Purchasers Roundtable; and (3) analysis of data collected in state-funded surveys. New Hampshire will: (1) retain a facilitator to play a key role in monthly on-site meetings of the State's interagency workgroup; (2) contribute to the development of written products throughout the project; and (3) coordinate a technical assistance group of state-funded consultants to advise on health policy initiatives. New Hampshire also will use technical support to assist both public and private purchaser's development and assessment of public-private initiatives for expanding employer-based coverage. In addition, the State will retain a consultant to provide a detailed analysis of employer and household surveys to develop and target further state insurance coverage expansions where they would have the greatest impact.
