HOP At-A-Glance

Understanding the Healthy Opportunities Pilot’s Impact on WNC

About HOP

Ninety percent of U.S. healthcare spending goes to medical care, but 80% of what affects a person’s health happens outside of a medical setting. The Healthy Opportunities Pilot (HOP) is an innovative new approach to supporting upstream social drivers of health while reducing the need for more costly clinical interventions by using Medicaid dollars to pay for services related to transportation, nutrition, housing and interpersonal safety.

Regional Impact

By supporting your community’s upstream health needs, HOP has a cascading effect:

Local nonprofits generate new revenue, creating and sustaining new jobs.

Healthcare costs are reduced, saving money for everyone.

Participants’ health improves, increasing their ability to learn, work and contribute to the local economy.

Overburdened hospitals and healthcare systems get relief, improving access to care for all.
