We Weave Health Equity into Our Work
California’s incredible diversity is magnified in its Medi-Cal membership. These residents historically experience health disparities at higher rates than the general population. A wide range of social drivers of health worsen health disparity gaps, including:
- Food insecurity
- Housing instability & discrimination
- Lack of employment opportunities
- Socioeconomic status
- Institutional racism & many other factors
Because two-thirds of Health Net members are enrolled in Medi-Cal, we’ve invested millions of dollars into local partnerships to address these social drivers of health. As a result, we’ve learned what approaches work better than others.
