The Washtenaw Health Initiative—a collaborative group of Washtenaw County community leaders and organizations that has worked together on a voluntary basis over the past year to improve access to health care for the county’s low-income, Medicaid, and vulnerable populations—announced today that it has helped more than 700 people in Washtenaw County obtain or keep Medicaid coverage or obtain access to other critical social supportive services.
Voluntary group shares information, ideas for closing health care gaps for county’s low-income, uninsured, and Medicaid populations. Thanks to a new initiative, low-income residents, Medicaid recipients, and the uninsured in Washtenaw County could see current gaps in health care services start to shrink before 2014, when health coverage expands nationwide under federal health care reform.
A voluntary effort by local leaders aims to improve coordinated care today for low-income, uninsured, and Medicaid populations by identifying and, where possible, closing service gaps for these individuals.
