Affordable Care Act
This community seeks to bring together a wide array of stakeholders connected to managed care organizations (MCOs), primarily those administering Medicaid and Medicare benefits (including Special Needs Plans), to facilitate greater understanding of the role managed care plays in individuals' lives and the greater community as well as facilitate smart cross-sector partnerships with MCOs.
Connecting grantees of the CSH/CLPHA/UnitedHealthcare planning grant, funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, that seeks to align public housing authorities (PHAs) and Medicare managed care organizations (MCOs) in three states -- Ohio, Texas, and Washington State -- at the system, program, and individual level.
The Council of Large Public Housing Authorities (CLPHA) hosted The Housing Is Summit in Washington, D.C., on May 3-4, 2018 with 200 partners across the housing, education, and healthcare sectors. The Summit highlighted the ways that we can transform systems to better serve low-income people with two days of plenary speakers/panels, breakout sessions, and caucus discussions geared toward intersectional thinking and ways to take action.
The 2018 CLPHA Health Strategic Planning Workshop, co-facilitated with Health Impact Project (a collaboration of Pew Charitable Trusts and Robert Wood Johnson Foundation) and Grantmakers in Health, convened over 35 communities across the country. Participating teams included internal PHA staff at member agencies who work on health-related initiatives as well as external partners that provide services, education, and other health resources for residents.
