Advancing health equity in Central Texas.
Review key takeaways from the 2023 Texas State of Enrollment Conference. Topics included open enrollment, Medicaid unwinding, immigrant accessibility, and more.
We're proud to partner with Every Texan and celebrate the cross-sector efforts that support our community through education, outreach and accessible resources to inform our community on the latest information related to health care access and enrollment.
2023 Texas State of Enrollment Conference Review key takeaways from the 2023 Texas State of Enrollment Conference. Topics included open enrollment, Medicaid unwinding, immigrant accessibility, and more.
Tune in to KAZI 88.7FM The Voice of Austin tomorrow morning around 8 am to listen to our partner Foundation Communities break down the Open Enrollment process and share how to access free support through Prosper Centers at Foundation Communities.
We’re committed to supporting community organizations helping Central Texans navigate health care access and enrollment through education, outreach, resources, and services. This is particularly urgent as thousands of Texans are impacted by Medicaid disenrollment—a crisis that directly impacts already vulnerable populations and will be felt for years to come, as access to care is limited or denied.
Texas has the highest percentage of uninsured residents in the United States. Health insurance is a building block on which access to vital to quality medical, dental, and behavioral health care is rooted. Right now, Texans have an opportunity to enroll in free or low-cost health care coverage. 2024 Open Enrollment goes through January 15, enroll by December 15 for coverage starting January 1. Learn more and enroll today at https://www.healthcare.gov/tps://www.healthcare.gov/
Medicaid disenrollment isn't just about numbers; it impacts real people, families, and communities.
The issue is a health crisis that will have negative long-term implications on the health of our most vulnerable communities.

Earlier this year, we joined colleagues at Grantmakers In Health in Minneapolis where we gathered as a community seeking to advance health equity.
Regan Gruber Moffitt, our Vice President of Community Investments, had the honor of moderating a learning lab discussion on The Journey from Health to Health Equity: Moving from Words to Action alongside our friends at Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust, Richmond Memorial Health Foundation, and Cone Health Foundation.
The conversation provoked thinking by giving real examples of how philanthropy can critically examine our role as grantmakers, influencers, and conveners as well as our staffing, operations, and communications practices.
We invite you to read reflections from Regan on why this conversation made her feel connected and key takeaways from panelists on how they are moving from words to action.

Thank you to Foundation Communities, Health Alliance for Austin Musicians - HAAM, Rep.

Since the Families First Coronavirus Response Act expired in April of this year, over 900,000 Texans have lost Medicaid coverage.
The issue of disenrollment is a health crisis—one that directly impacts already vulnerable populations.
