Health Coverage and Access to Care

SHADAC Projects and Resources related to Health Insurance Coverage and Access to Care:

Monitoring the Impact of the Affordable Care Act (ACA 411 Project)
In support of the California Health Care Foundation’s efforts to track the impact of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) in the state, SHADAC continues to work with CHCF in order to provide policymakers, journalists, and advocates with focused, credible analysis and regarding Californians’ coverage, access, and affordability, particularly among low-income populations and others affected by the ACA. SHADAC provides data and data analysis on a number of measures under the three main topic areas (coverage, access, and affordability), and also provides guidance on developments that warrant further study or response by the Foundation or others in the state.

Minnesota’s Uninsured and the Communities in Which They Live
Supported by a grant from the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Foundation of Minnesota and essential guidance from the advisory board of MNsure navigators and policymakers, SHADAC used data from the American Community Survey (ACS) to create a new resource consisting of a profile and an interactive map, which provides rates and counts of the uninsured in Minnesota at the ZIP code level (i.e., Census-defined ZIP code) county, economic development region, and state. The focus of this resource is to (a) support targeted outreach and enrollment activities of health insurance navigators; and (b) provide information about the uninsured to policymakers as they develop strategies to reach the remaining uninsured in Minnesota and reduce geographic disparities in coverage.
