Do health plan networks reduce health inequities or inadvertently reinforce them?

Roger Holstein, Chairman at Quest Analytics and Managing Director, Vestar
There are substantial disparities in health outcomes amongst socially disadvantaged populations. These disparities are not in fact due to race, nor individual choices, but largely due to social determinants and the historical policies which led to them. Roger Holstein’s presentation will seek to answer the pivotal questions:

  1. What is health equity?
  2. Do today’s health plan networks improve health disparities or potentially and inadvertently reinforce them?
  3. What can health plans and providers do to ensure that access to care reduces health inequities?
