The Ups & Downs of Income…and Care

Sometimes our clients have fluctuating incomes, which means they have fluctuating access to healthcare.

Sophia was disqualified from Medi-Cal because she made too much money.  The social worker from the hospital referred her to us for help in adjusting her insurance.

We found that Sophia was eligible for a plan through Covered California and she qualified for a “stipend” to help cover the costs.  Unfortunately, within six months, Sophia’s income plummeted and she could no longer afford the premiums through Covered California.  Back she went to Medi-Cal and back to Young & Healthy for help in navigating the quagmire of insurance changes and paperwork.

As a community, we are getting better at helping families understand WHY insurance is so important, but it still isn’t easy for them to pursue it.

At Young and Healthy we have found a simple solution to a complex problem.

Help us continue to make Pasadena a healthier and happier place for everyone.
