  • Care for the Homeless Empowering Health Care Consumers Conference Scholarship Priority Area: Empowering Health Care Consumers $3,556

    A key goal of NYSHealth’s Empowering Health Care Consumers priority area is to ensure that people have the tools, resources, and support they need to make informed decisions about their health care. As the only statewide health foundation in New York, NYSHealth can play a leadership role in building the field of leaders and changemakers working across the State to empower health care consumers. For organizations already engaged in this work, attending conferences and other convenings provides an opportunity to share their successes and lessons learned. Conference attendance can also encourage new actors to enter the field and incorporate consumer empowerment into their work. Yet, because of a lack of resources, many are often unable to attend. Through its Sponsoring Conference Participation Related to Empowering Health Care Consumers Request for Proposals, NYSHealth is sponsoring nonprofit or low-resourced organizations to attend or present at local, State, and national conferences related to empowering health care consumers. In 2017, NYSHealth awarded Care for the Homeless (CFH) a grant to participate in this initiative.

  • New York University, Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service Evaluating Consumer and Provider Effects of FAIR Health Online Shopping Tool Priority Area: Empowering Health Care Consumers $296,775

    More and more New Yorkers are enrolled in health insurance plans that have high deductibles, significant cost-sharing provisions, and narrow or closed networks. As a result, it is imperative that consumers have the right information to understand and compare their health care options. Despite the need for better information, consumers continue to face a lack of health care price transparency tools. In 2015, NYSHealth awarded a grant to FAIR Health, which oversees the nation’s largest private claims database, to create a consumer tool with pricing information that would help consumers compare providers. The tool, NY HOST, will launch in two phases: a physician charge phase in September 2017 and a hospital charge phase in February 2018 that will offer pricing information for hospitals in Buffalo, Syracuse, Albany, and Westchester. To evaluate the tool’s impact on consumer behavior, provider charges, and the health care market, NYSHealth awarded a grant in 2017 to New York University Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service (NYU).
