“I’m covered. What happens now?” 

For organizations that have been working to get uninsured Americans – including millions of racial and ethnic minorities – into affordable health coverage, the challenge has now shifted to helping patients connect the dots between coverage and care – from learning to use insurance to selecting a primary care physician to using preventive services and screenings.

This webinar will offer providers a look at successful efforts to connect the newly insured to the health care system, including CMS’ Coverage to Care initiative, and resources to help strengthen coordination of care, including HRSA’s Patient-Centered Medical/Health Home Initiative.

This is the first in a special Minority Health Month webinar series that will be held each Monday throughout April.

Presenters: Cara James, PhD, Director, CMS Office of Minority HealthSuma Nair, MS, RD, Director, Office of Quality and Data at HRSA BPHC

With introduction by J. Nadine Gracia, MD, MSCE, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Minority Health and Director, Office of Minority Health, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
