FAIR Health Presents at Grantmakers in Health Annual Conference
FAIR Health was delighted to be invited to the Grantmakers in Health (GIH) Annual Conference on June 21 in Chicago. The GIH conference is the largest gathering of health funders in the country, and aims to create an opportunity for funders to connect and learn from one another. As a past and present grantee of The New York Community Trust (The Trust), FAIR Health was invited by Trust Program Director Irfan Hasan to present a Tech Byte session that showcased our innovative, consumer-oriented technological tools to health funders from across the nation.
FAIR Health President Robin Gelburd presented the session “Advancing Health Insurance Literacy with Data-Driven Consumer Tools,” which introduced the audience to our award-winning, national, mobile- and web-based consumer tools. These English- and Spanish-language, free consumer tools are designed to advance consumers’ understanding of health insurance and out-of-pocket healthcare costs. In line with the conference theme, “Navigating Currents of Change,” these tools empower consumers to make informed decisions in a rapidly evolving healthcare environment involving high-deductible health plans, narrow networks and more. The tools were developed with the generous support of The Trust, the New York State Health Foundation and the Connecticut Health Foundation.
