The Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF) has conducted a number of interviews with Puerto Rico and US Virgin Islands residents in February 2018, six months after Hurricane Maria crossed Puerto Rico. A panel of experts involved in federal, territory, or facility health care coordination were present to discuss the issues experienced and the ongoing works to prepare for the next Hurricane season. The panel discussed issues of the electrical power source, the hospital operations and status, and the financial needs from federal funding programs like Medicaid for Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands.
