Insure the Uninsured Project
Insure the Uninsured Project (ITUP) is an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and health policy institute that for more than two decades has offered expert analysis and facilitated convenings for California policymakers and decisionmakers focused on health reform. The work of ITUP is more important than ever as the shifting federal health reform landscape poses new and potentially daunting challenges to California’s progress in reducing the number of uninsured.
Located in Sacramento, California, the mission of ITUP is to promote innovative and workable policy solutions that expand health care access and improve the health of Californians. Through policy-focused research and broad-based stakeholder engagement, ITUP is a neutral facilitator seeking common ground among diverse stakeholders, including health care payers, providers, government, and advocates. ITUP offers objective analysis of state and federal policies affecting health care coverage, access and programs in California for state policymakers and health care leaders. ITUP hosts an annual statewide conference in Sacramento and facilitates regional and statewide workgroups on health policy topics.
ITUP is led by a distinguished eight-member Board of Directors with 5-8 staff depending on the number of interns at any point in time.
