Newly Released: CMS Framework for Health Equity

The CMS Office of Minority Health released the CMS Framework for Health Equity to address health disparities as a foundational element across all our work -- in every program and across every community. Using five priority areas, CMS will use this framework to design, implement, and operationalize policies and programs to support health for all people served by our programs, eliminating avoidable differences in health outcomes experienced by people who are disadvantaged or underserved, and providing the care and support that our enrollees need to thrive.
