Arkansas State Coverage Initiative

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.
