The role of health plans in addressing social determinants of health

What problems can be solved when health plans collaborate with each other rather than compete? In this episode, we explore Project Link, a forum that brings health plans together to understand the impact of social determinants of health (SDOH) on their members. Michelle Jester, Executive Director of Social Determinants of Health for America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP), describes innovative approaches to solving SDOH challenges achieved through health plan communication and collaboration.

"With social determinants in particular, there’s a sense of collaboration and wanting to help each other. I think there’s an acknowledgement that we’re all on this journey together and it’s the right thing to do for our members and the people we serve."
