“First Do No Harm:” Combatting Black Maternal Health Disparities
– PatientEngagementHIT

Manatt Health managing director Chiquita Brooks-LaSure was quoted in PatientEngagementHIT discussing the maternal healthcare inequities faced by Black and other minority mothers, and strategies that may address these issues. Specifically, Brooks-LaSure talked about the challenges that new mothers, especially those receiving Medicaid and other public health subsidies, face as it relates to ensuring they have a “continuity of [insurance] coverage.” Brooks-LaSure stated that “this is clearly an area where states can help make sure that the various groups that help people enroll in coverage today are funded and aware of this issue.”
