Social Determinants Accelerator Act reintroduced in House
Apr 14, 2021

Reps. Cheri Bustos, D-Ill., Tom Cole, R-Okla., Jim McGovern, D-Mass., and Markwayne Mullin, R-Okla., today reintroduced the Social Determinants Accelerator Act, AHA-supported legislation that would provide planning grants and technical assistance to help states and communities address the social determinants of health for high-need Medicaid patients.
