Bridging Access to Care’s Chief Executive Officer, Nadine Akinyemi, participated in an interview regarding healthcare and the future of Medicaid with Circulo Health’s Alyssa Barker, as well as Christopher Ross Joseph, who is the Executive Director of Engagewell IPA.
During the discussion, Christopher first addresses the HIV transmission rates in New York City, as well as the difficulties individuals may have in finding the best healthcare depending on their insurance plans.
Nadine, who is also the Board Chair of Engagewell IPA, then expands upon BAC’s main mission to provide trauma-informed care to underserved communities, but specifically details how our organization is creating more access to healthcare. She also dives into the importance of teaching healthy habits, risk factors, accessing the right kind of care and how we can all support the community.
Both Chris and Nadine also address some of the primary issues that individuals face when it comes to financial matters and navigating the best treatment with Medicaid insurance plans. Chris explains the opportunities that will be available for foundations and other healthcare brands to get involved in Engagewell IPA’s 3-year Connected Care Pilot Program.
