How Oak Street Health’s Value-Based Care Structure is Bolstering Health Equity in Underserved Communities

As we approach the third year of the COVID-19 pandemic, the need for bridging health disparities and focussing on health equity has come more and more to the forefront for both health practitioners and health policy thinkers. Health equity is about ensuring everyone, regardless of age, income, zip code, or ethnicity, gets the care they need to be as healthy as possible. At Oak Street Health, we have become a leader in working towards health equity in underserved communities across the country. The main way we are able to do this is via our value-based care structure for adults on Medicare, particularly those in underserved communities with multiple chronic conditions.
