Social Determinants in Medicare and Medicaid White Papers

Hospitals and health systems are increasingly focused on ways to address the social and economic factors that can affect health and health outcomes for their patients and communities. To help hospital leaders as they consider policies to address these social determinants of health, the AHA released two white papers examining the current authority and flexibility to address social determinants of health in both the Medicare and Medicaid programs. The Medicare paper focuses on opportunities to address the social determinants within the Medicare Advantage program, and the Medicaid paper focuses on current authority available in the program, as well as examples of state programs addressing the social determinants.
