More and more, policymakers recognize that effectively addressing patients’ social needs (such as housing instability or lack of access to healthy food) is essential to advancing health equity, improving population health, and managing health care costs. The significant challenge of comprehensively addressing social needs requires action, innovation, and collaboration from a broad range of stakeholders, including public and private health care payers. Payers can be an important part of the solution by changing how they pay providers that treat patients with social needs and by partnering with social service organizations. Although it is difficult work, a number of payers have been at the forefront of designing and deploying policies that encourage health care providers to help address health-related social needs.
