Access to Care

Supporting access to quality, cost-effective care is at the heart of everything we do. In 2022, we continued to expand coverage options, close gaps in preventive care, and invest in organizations that advance equitable access to critical services.

  • Providing community-based access to immunizations, basic oral care and other services with the Care Van® program.
  • Collaborating with providers to focus on behavioral health, early cancer detection, immunizations, diabetes management, cardiovascular care, and maternal and infant health.
  • Innovating and partnering to support children’s mental health needs.
