Brooks, T., & Whitener, K. (2018). Leveraging Medicaid to address social determinants and improve child and population health. Washington, DC: Georgetown University.

Year: 2018


This brief is intended to ground health care advocates on social determinants of health (SDOH) basics and describe ways Medicaid, in partnership with the health plans and providers that deliver public coverage benefits, can improve the health of enrollees by addressing the SDOH. It provides background and highlights resources that can support advocacy efforts to drive change in how our public coverage programs evolve in order to achieve better health outcomes and reduce health disparities for low-income children and families.
