From ending the opioid crisis to making care affordable for all, solving health care's most intractable challenges will require innovative solutions. The CHCF Health Innovation Fund invests in market-based solutions with the potential to improve access and health outcomes for Californians with low incomes.
In addition to covering more people than any other insurer in the US, Medicaid also covers half of all births and one-quarter of all behavioral health spending. Improving Medi-Cal, California’s Medicaid program, is one of the best investments we can make in the health of our state.
One of the most efficient ways to achieve this improvement is by helping market-based innovations succeed and scale in the health care safety net. The CHCF Health Innovation Fund invests in emerging technology and service companies that enable payers and providers to expand access, improve quality, and lower costs for patients — in Medicaid and beyond.
