    Boulder County is home to nearly 44,000 Medicaid/CHP+ enrollees – with another 33,000 people remaining uninsured even after the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, which greatly expanded insurance coverage.

Join guests Dr. Valerie Lipetz, Chief Medical Officer of Ambulatory Services at Boulder Community Health and Simon Smith, President and CEO of Clinica Family Health to understand the current barriers to specialty care referrals for under-insured patients and how the Boulder County Health Improvement Collaborative, a program of The Community Foundation, hopes to move the needle for specialty care access.
