The passage of the Affordable Care Act is anticipated to result in better health outcomes for communities of color, and the phrase “health disparities” occurs throughout the law. However, “health equity” is a broader concept that encompasses more than just the reduction of disparities between groups. How can we ensure that health equity is infused into all aspects of the ACA implementation?

This workshop will look at the following issues:

  • Expansion of coverage
  • Patient Centered Medical Home
  • Public/Private Partnerships
  • Safety Net Challenges
  • Consumer Engagement
