Extending the Reach of Healthcare Programs by Overcoming Obstacles to Use in New Orleans

What is New Orleans proposing?
The city of New Orleans is focused on increasing use of healthcare services by overcoming points of resistance through more effective public engagement.
New Orleans seeks to increase the number of people using healthcare services under a Medicaid waiver program. Engaging residents would help New Orleans better understand why people don’t use the program today and how the city could address those issues. The City Accelerator would help the city adapt leading approaches to this work.
Public response is one of several criteria being used by the City Accelerator to select cohort cities. The number of ratings or comments by themselves do not determine final status or selection.
