We thank the members of the Multi-Agency Consortium and Oversight Team of Community Voices–Miami for their insightful comments on earlier versions of this report. Although it is impossible to acknowledge every individual's contribution, we benefited from detailed comments by several staff members of the Jackson Health System and by Hilary Hoo-you and Marty Lucia of the Health Policy Authority. They helped us develop a better understanding of the issues surrounding health care for the uninsured in Miami, and their input contributed considerably to the final version of the report.
We also thank our partners at Camillus House and the United Way of Miami-Dade County for their support of this work, and the W. K. Kellogg Foundation, which, through its support of Community Voices, made this report possible.
Formal reviews of the draft text were provided by John W. Colloton, Director Emeritus of the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, and Geoffrey Joyce of RAND. Their comments and recommended revisions greatly enhanced the usefulness of the report.
We also appreciate the assistance of other RAND colleagues. Specifically, Marika Suttorp and Jennifer Sharp helped with the analyses contained in this report, and Amanda Beatty provided very helpful comments on a near-final version.
Our acknowledgments should not be taken to imply that the persons and organizations mentioned above endorse our approach and conclusions. The authors take full responsibility for all assertions and interpretations in this report.
