Medicaid and the Social Determinants of Health

July 26, 2018


                        

Overview: Medicaid is a publicly-funded health insurance program that currently covers 74 million people in the United States. Medicaid covers low-income people who are children, expectant mothers, people with disabilities, senior citizens, and some adults.

Opportunities exist through Medicaid to address the social determinants of health. ASTHO’s senior director for clinical to community connections in the Center for Population Health Strategies—and a former Medicaid Director—discusses approaches to address the social determinants of health and improve health outcomes for Medicaid beneficiaries.
