CCLP co-publishes case study with Community Catalyst
In partnership with national health advocacy organization Community Catalyst, CCLP has published a case study looking at how the experiences of people in Colorado communities drove the development and passing of HB21-1198: Health-care Billing Requirements for Indigent Patients in 2021.
Written by CCLP’s Deputy Director of Strategic Priorities Allison Neswood, this new study reports on how previous efforts to address hospital financial assistance had fallen short, what had changed in 2021, how data pointed to the financial toxicity of health care and the impact of racism on financial outcomes, and much more.
About Community Catalyst
Community Catalyst is a leading non-profit national health advocacy organization dedicated to advancing a movement for health equity and justice. We partner with local, state and national advocates to leverage and build power so all people can influence decisions that affect their health. Health systems will not be accountable to people without a fully engaged and organized community voice. That’s why we work every day to ensure people’s interests are represented wherever important decisions about health and health care are made: in communities, state houses and on Capitol Hill.
