New Health Insurance Video
A “must-see” video for health & human service professionals interacting with clients.
Are you ever asked basic questions on health insurance that you cannot confidently answer? Questions such as:
• Why do I need health insurance?
• Where can I get help with selecting health insurance?
• What are my options if I can’t afford health insurance?
Chances are you don’t want to become an insurance expert, but you would like to help your clients, patients, friends and/or family members get the health insurance they need.
Last spring when the Coalition’s Access & Empowerment Committee volunteers learned that local health and human service agency staff are frequently asked these kinds of questions, they began work on this video to help agency staff answer basic questions and guide clients to local resources.
The video was compiled with input from local health insurance navigators and certified application counselors. It is only 14 minutes long, fast-paced and will tell you what you need to know.
