Steering Committee discusses the future direction of the WHI

At the September 15th meeting, CHRT staff and the Steering Committee discussed the future direction of the WHI. Meeting participants agreed that WHI members would like it to continue, that it was very valuable to the community, and that it played a unique role. Even though the first year of ACA enrollment was over, there were still challenges and opportunities presented by the ACA. Several recommendations were made about future focus areas including mental health, Medicaid and Marketplace eligibility and enrollment, needs assessments, veteran and family care needs, needs of the newly insured, end-of-life care, and the State Innovation Model (SIM).
