Access to Care: Emergency Department Community Health Workers
The Access to Care Program employs Community Health Workers in hospital emergency rooms to assist patients with:
- Applying for immediate medical health insurance coverage;
- Scheduling follow-up appointments to a local community clinic that can act as their primary care medical home;
- Access to free imaging services to patients who qualify (San Fernando Valley only); and
- Navigating community resources.
This free program partners with local clinics in the San Fernando Valley to provide patients with a primary medical home, access to a network of physician specialists and free imaging services to patients who qualify.
