Description and Upcoming Meetings

On Thursday, December 13th, the Minnesota Health Care Reform Task Force voted to endorse the Roadmap to a Healthier Minnesota, including its recommendations for how to increase access to high quality care at lower cost. The report outlines eight interconnected strategies for policymakers to consider as they work to implement federal and state health reforms, including recommendations regarding increased access, care integration and payment reform, prevention and public health and preparing the Minnesota health workforce of the future.

The Roadmap includes policy strategies for creating more patient-centered coordinated care, changing payment structures to incentivize keeping people healthy, engaging communities in designing healthier environments and encouraging increased personal responsibility in health and health care. Specific recommendations include support for expanding Medicaid eligibility to Minnesotans living at or below 133 percent of the federal poverty level (an option for states under the Affordable Care Act) and support for establishment of a Minnesota-based health insurance exchange using a public-private governance model.

The Health Reform Task Force was authorized by the Legislature to provide advice on federal and state health reform implementation. Members were appointed by Gov. Mark Dayton’s Executive Order 11-30, signed Oct. 31, 2011. The task force held 65 public meetings between November 2011 and December 2012, including meetings in Rochester, Duluth, St. Cloud, St. Paul, and Minneapolis.

Over the course of the past year, approximately 1,500 people attended these public task force meetings, including more than 115 individuals and organizations that provided in-person testimony. More than 750 public comment letters also were submitted in response to task force discussions.  Additionally, the Bush Foundation and the Citizens League directly engaged nearly 1,100 Minnesotans around the state in thoughtful conversations on health and health care through a project called Citizen Solutions: A different conversation about fixing health care.

The recommendations in the Roadmap to a Healthier Minnesota are based on Task Force and Work Group discussion, expert testimony, Citizen Solutions’ feedback, and public input.  The Roadmap and Supplement are available at these links.
