About one year has passed since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic and much has changed for individuals, families, and communities across the world. As we reflect on incredible loss, extraordinary adversity, and difficulties yet to come, we are left with one option: to rebuild and recover, using the lessons we've learned and guided by the optimism of knowing that we can — and will — reach a brighter future, together.
While our work at BDT has shifted to meet the moment, our commitment remains the same: by harnessing the power of data, technology, and policy, we aim to improve people’s health and financial security. Since transitioning to work remotely in March of 2020, our contact center staff has answered over 130,000 calls and submitted over 105,000 applications for households nationwide — we couldn’t have reached those numbers without the hard work of BDT’s staff and support of our partners.
Though we can't host visitors in our Philadelphia office, we wanted to capture some of that magic through a virtual tour hosted by our CEO Trooper Sanders. We welcome you to join us by watching the recording, where speakers from across the organization discuss recent changes and progress of our collective work.
Here’s a clip from our virtual visit:
While the pandemic has exposed significant flaws within our healthcare system, such as the barriers to access for many marginalized groups, it has also provided states with a unique opportunity to challenge the status quo. How? By building on the progress made by the continuous coverage requirement under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act.
BDT’s policy team has new insights on how states can help to reduce Medicaid churn and make coverage more equitable for all.
At BDT, we often refer to our staff as the most important ingredient to our “secret sauce.” That’s because we couldn’t connect as many people to critical assistance without their skill, empathy, and dedication to our mission.
Thanks to our partners, BDT’s team has grown to help support the increased need for benefits across the country, and we’re thrilled to announce two new members of BDT that will help us do just that.
Bert Miuccio has been promoted to Senior Director, Development and Healthcare Innovation. Formerly the Director of Healthcare Innovation, Bert led BDT’s efforts to connect members of healthcare plans to public benefits. In his new role, he will continue to oversee this work, along with his expanded responsibilities, which includes overseeing the development team and working closely with others across the organization to ensure BDT is resourced for maximum impact.
