Demystifying The Health Care Maze
Taking care of a vulnerable population often means you come up against the complications of our health care system. If the person you’re helping doesn’t have adequate health insurance or a permanent medical home, it can be difficult for them to access the health care that they need.
The South Metro Health Alliance (SMHA) invites its members and the community to ‘Demystifying The Health Care Maze’ panel event at Tri-County Health Department, 6162 S Willow Drive, Greenwood Village, CO 80111 on Monday, March 17, 2014 from 10am to 12pm. This convening is a free community event with a panel discussion focused on how we can help our vulnerable population get the health care they need. Topics we’ll be discussing include:
- What insurance options are available (including the health exchange, Medicaid, Medicare & CHP+)?
- How easy is it to find a medical home (with or without insurance)?
- When should the ER be used vs urgent care or a primary care provider?
- How can we take a more active role in our health care?
- What is a patient navigator and what role do they play?
- What other assistance is available?
If you are trying to help someone access the health care that they need, come to the discussion and ask your questions to our experts.
Light snacks and refreshments will be available. Registration is free and attendees can sign up at www.smhaco.org, or by calling Traci Jones on 303 793 9615 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
