Social Services Market Expertise
Addressing social determinants of health—such as poverty, lack of education, racism, discrimination, environment, and community conditions—has become a common strategic conversation in a market focused on whole person care and the value equation. Payers and health plans are taking a more structured approach to addressing social support needs and this opens new possibilities for managers of organizations that provide social support programs that have typically been excluded from health care financing arrangements.
