Keeping Our Eyes Open
A few weeks ago, Cynthia came into the office to register her two school-aged children for our first Back-to-School Vision Clinic in partnership with Helen Keller Int’l. After she received her appointment, our Care Team member noticed that she did not list any health insurance on her registration form. She stopped Cynthia on her way out and offered our health insurance enrollment services. Cynthia burst into tears. It turns out she had just lost her employment of 23 years and her husband was going to lose his employment at the end of the month. She hadn’t known what her family of five was going to do. She was so grateful to have help enrolling her family in Medi-Cal and a governmental food assistance program. These programs will help ease the stress of their unemployment. Our Care Team is always keeping their eyes open for ways to serve our community, so if you or someone you know needs help with insurance enrollment or access to pediatric healthcare, don’t hesitate to reach out to us to schedule an appointment.
