Health In All Policies

healthinallpolicies

There is a growing recognition that factors outside the formal health system such as education, housing, economic opportunity, and transportation can impact the health of individuals, families, and communities. To make inroads in improving population health, we need to look “upstream” at social determinants of health in addition to factors within the health system such as coverage, access to care, and health care value. In 2016, Georgians for a Healthy Future is launching a new project to bring together stakeholders and advocates from across sectors to identify promising policy initiatives that can address social determinants of health. We’ll add additional information and resources to this page as the initiative progresses.

The newest version of the ACA repeal bill still strips health care away from 560,000 Georgians, raises premiums in Georgia by an average of $3000+, and cuts our state's Medicaid program by $4 billion. There's new stuff in the bill too! Now it guts protections for people with pre-existing conditions, ends national standards on what health care services insurers have to cover, and ends the nation wide ban on annual & lifetime benefit caps.

The House of Representatives wants to vote on this bill tomorrow! Call your member of Congress NOW: 866-426-2631
