Working Together to Improve Health Equity

Introduction

 
Every American deserves affordable, high-quality care and health coverage regardless of health status, race, color, national origin, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, or disability. For years, health insurance providers have been committed to improving health equity and combating social determinants of health in our communities.  

We know that ending discrimination and systemic racism is essential for an equitable health care system – but addressing discrimination alone does not fully address health equity challenges. 

In honor of Black History Month, we talked with several of our most prominent and distinguished leaders in health care to learn more about how we can work together to improve health equity – and what we can learn from other health care leaders. 

This is a seminal moment for racial and social justice and greater diversity, equity, and inclusion. We have an urgent mandate to reform our health care system so everyone in America has an equal opportunity to thrive and achieve their best health.
