Tools: Impact Matrix

Project Results: Built a shared Title V Value Proposition for eligibility and enrollment, continuity of care, provider network and network adequacy, coverage and insurance benefits, and partnerships between stakeholders (Title V, Medicaid, CHIP, and Marketplace). The team used their findings to develop an impact matrix, identify opportunities for improvement, and develop a shared action plan to support local and state action.
