People Collaborating Around a Table

Who We Are

We collaborate with  partners across the Medicaid ecosystem.  Each collaborator lends their voice to solve complex health inequities in the United States. From the Medicaid beneficiaries all the way to community-based organizations, providers, private sector companies, health plans, and policy creators, the Medicaid Innovation Collaboratives builds connections to reduce health disparities.

Our Mission

The Medicaid Innovation Collaborative (MIC) aims to improve the health and wellbeing of individuals on Medicaid by connecting the ecosystem to tech-enabled innovations.
