Providing Access to Healthcare,
One Valuable Person at a Time
"Health insurance changed my life." Meet Maria, a recipient of Advance Community Health's Outreach and Enrollment services. Last year, Maria attended an Outreach and Enrollment event because she had never had health insurance before and did not know how to get started with the Marketplace. "I've always worked for what I have. I'm grateful to finally have health insurance and especially for the help to sign up, but I'm more glad I can pay for it too," says Maria about getting insurance. Outreach worker, Kendra Hinton, says, "Providing health education and increasing the community's awareness of the presence of health resources is necessary to advancing community wellness."
|ACH Outreach team member, Kendra Hinton, helps a community member enroll in health insurance.
When Maria is not farming or spending time with her 3 grandchildren, she is making sure her uninsured neighbors and friends are able to attend our Enrollment events. When asked about how she began offering rides she says, "I started telling everyone who would listen about my new insurance and offered rides to my buddies who can't drive anymore or don't have cars. It's just something I do."
During the 2015-16 Enrollment Period, Advance Community Health has helped enroll 122 people into health insurance. With the Enrollment deadline of Jan. 31 quickly approaching, please see the panel to the left for our contact information and enrollment events.
I am Advance Community Health...

years. I started

nt to medical records, and for the past seven years I have been a medical rece
ptionist. I am such a people person that I am always willing to go beyond my duties to help.
Building a relationship with these patients is great because you learn their name and a little something about them, which makes them know you care about their well being.
I would rather work in a Community Health Center because we give the best service to the people that need it the most: the uninsured and the homeless. Healthcare is not a privilege, it's a right.
Health Tips from
Cervical Cancer & HPV
January is Cervical Health Awareness Month, and
Advance Community Health wants you to know that there's a lot you can do to prevent cervical cancer.
HPV (human papillomavirus) is a very common infection that spreads through sexual activity. It's also a major cause of cervical cancer. About 79 million Americans currently have HPV, but many people with HPV don't know they are infected.
The good news?
- The HPV vaccine (shot) can prevent HPV. Parents need to make sure pre-teens get the HPV vaccine at age 11 or 12, but women up to age 26 are eligible.
- Cervical cancer can often be prevented with regular screening tests (called Pap tests) and follow-up care. Women should start getting regular Pap tests at age 21.
Please call (919) 833-3111 to schedule an appointment with one of our providers for a screening test and
vaccine consultation for yourself and your child.
Thanks to the health care reform law, you and your family members may be able to get these services at no cost to you. Check with your insurance company to learn more.
