The Foundation's program, State Coverage Initiatives, was designed to help states develop and implement policies that expand access to health insurance coverage. The purpose of this project is a two-pronged strategy to address health insurance needs and expansion capacity through both public and private sectors. The two objectives are: (1) design programmatic and funding strategies through Medicaid/SCHIP to optimize publicly funded health insurance expansion; and (2) design programmatic and funding strategies to stabilize and expand private health insurance.
