In 2013, The New York Times said of Missouri, "Looking for a new health insurance marketplace, set to open in this state in two months, is like searching for a unicorn."
Challenge: Accepted. Starting with a small group of 39 dedicated advocates, StratCommRx and a team of expert partners worked with the Missouri Foundation for Health to build an active, engaged, 1000+ member-strong group called the Cover Missouri Coalition. A true force for good in our state, Coalition members have helped ensure hundreds of thousands of Missourians not only have health insurance coverage, but also know how to keep and use it.
StratCommRx leads facilitation and engagement efforts on this project, managing all aspects of the ever-growing statewide coalition and five working groups, comprised of staff from hospitals, health centers, community organizations, and many other health care settings across the state. In addition to aiding in strategy and managing all aspects of this group's dynamic meetings, we also send out regular email updates and newsletters to keep members informed and engaged.
