Insuring Connecticut's Uninsured

December 8, 2010

Did you know that 43,000 uninsured children in Connecticut may be eligible for Medicaid, but are not enrolled? Community Health Center, Inc. (CHC) is a statewide primary care organization with a goal of connecting all children to health care—and to health insurance. We want to partner with community organizations to find and enroll Connecticut's eligible but uninsured children. We have developed a unique, mobile, electronic screening and enrollment application process. Our outreach workers can come to you, in your neighborhood and to community organizations, to screen and assist children—and often their parents—in applying.

Please contact Julie Halpin (halpinj@chc1.com) or call her at (203) 237-2229 ext. 6439 for more information. We encourage you to check our website, www.qualify4care.com , where you can test our screening application, and – as always – please visit CHC's website at chc1.com for more information about our organization.

Community Health Center, Inc. provides medical, dental and behavioral health services for people of all ages. If someone does not have insurance but wants care, we can provide health services on a sliding scale, based on the individual's income. An Access to Care worker can help determine a person's eligibility for public benefits and help him or her apply.
