Foundation / Corporation
Kaiser Permanente Colorado
Grants to Colorado nonprofits in the funding source's service area to increase and improve specialty health care for low-income uninsured adults or those who receive Medicaid assistance. A webinar will take place May 11, 2017. Letters of intent are due June 16, 2017.
Applicants are not required to have an existing, implemented specialty care program but must demonstrate planning for and/or progress toward implementation. Requested funding should support staff time and any additional expenses associated with participation in the cohort and expansion of an existing program or implementation of a new specialty care program already in the planning stages.
Specialty care refers to medical care provided by a clinician with advanced training and specialized clinical expertise in such specialty areas as cardiology, dermatology, and rheumatology. Specialty care does not include urgent and trauma care, family practice, or internal medicine. This funding opportunity is open to organizations that have identified access to specialty care as a prioritized need and have an established work group in place to address the issue.
The two outcomes of this funding opportunity that applicants should address are:
- Work collaboratively with a cohort of grantees to develop and pilot a process for communication and referral across organizations, service areas, and systems that includes virtual and technological solutions
- Increase/improve access to specialty care for adults 18 years of age and older who receive Medicaid assistance and/or are low-income uninsured (including undocumented individuals) through expansion of an existing program or implementation of a new program already in the planning stages
- Have identified access to specialty care as a prioritized need
- Have an established work group in place to address the issue
- Provide dedicated staff to attend required grantee cohort meetings and contribute to the work of the cohort in between meetings
- Demonstrate a willingness to collaborate with others to develop and pilot a process for communication and referral across organizations, service areas, and systems that includes virtual and technological solutions
