I loved your poster, it is so visually appealing. Whoever color coordinated, please consider a side hustle in interior design or something. Okay, back on topic, you mention that transportation is a big limiting factor and I was wondering if you've thought of any ways to solve this problem. I.e. would certain insurances allow you to purchase bus/public transportation gift cards with HSA cards and/or factor in transportation costs into Medicaid patient funding? Maybe a check would be allotted for a patient prior to a procedure for travel? Or maybe you have these surveys as an incentive, if you complete them you get a monetized reward related to your health care?

Thanks Amanda, those would definitely be approaches that could work. We were thinking of bus passes or other forms of transportation access as compensation for the CHNA in the future. There have also been discussions about using insurance for food or other health purposes that might not canonically be thought of as billable items for health insurance but I think that expanding on what an HSA card could cover, or what a physician could 'prescribe' are great ideas to address this lapse.
