Payment Models for Pro-Poor Healthcare: USA, Latin America and Africa

August 27, 2014

On Wednesday, September 17, 2014 from 6:30-8:30pm at Moody's Corporation, Jump Associates’ Ibanga Umanah will be moderating a panel discussion, titled Payment Models for Pro-Poor Healthcare: USA, Latin America and Africa.
At least 11.7 million long-term immigrant residents of American communities are excluded from health insurance, limiting their access to health resources. New York City estimates that close to 500,000 immigrants will remain uninsured after the Affordable Care Act implementation.
Grameen America has just launched Grameen PrimaCare which will focus on their unique needs and enable them to build a supportive relationship and network to sustain healthy living practices. Grameen PrimaCare will rely on a fixed fee of $49 per month. In return for access to health care, clients will have to attend weekly meetings with a focus on nutrition and health living.
 
But will their target market be willing to pay these fees when their real focus is not on themselves but on sending money home to their families?
 
The discussion will be opened by Pablo Farías, Chief Executive Officer of Grameen PrimaCare who will make the case for the model he has designed.  
 
This will be followed by presentations by two different approaches to private healthcare provision, one from Latin America and one from Africa.
