HEALTH NAVIGATION

Navigating the health care system shouldn’t be a detriment to your health.

Impact Area: Health Navigation

No matter how old you are or how educated, the truth is the health care system can be absolutely daunting. Barriers within the system can be especially intimidating for vulnerable people who are in need of care. And it’s not just about being able to figure out complex medical forms or insurance paperwork. Transportation to appointments, literacy, language barriers, financial insecurity, housing, food security, child care (or lack thereof), cultural background and many other factors may challenge a person’s ability to get the care they need, when they need it. Plus, there’s the added worry of knowing how to navigate all the paperwork that goes along with appointments and insurance. That’s why Boomers Leading Change works with partner organizations like Doctors Care to address those factors and help the most vulnerable overcome barriers.

Service Work Opportunity:

At Doctors Care, Boomer volunteers work with clients to address immediate and long-term needs such as transportation, finding doctors, understanding healthcare policies, identifying childcare providers, helping reduce healthcare costs and more. Our volunteers have helped hundreds of clients get the care they need.
