Caring For Our Community

Community Resource Advocacy

Every GFHS Family Medicine practice has a staff member – a Community Resource Advocate (CRA),  who can assist patients with enrollment in pharmaceutical charity programs, Medicare, ACA Health Insurance, and disability applications through the SOAR program. He/she can provide education and complete paperwork for new uninsured patients, refer patients to Medicaid, and to other community resources based on their expressed needs.  The CRA staff members are also trained in SHIIP (Seniors’ Heath Insurance Information Program) coordination, and can help counsel Medicare beneficiaries and caregivers about Medicare, Medicare supplements, Medicare Advantage , Part D and long term care insurance.

Our CRA staff members are available at the following Family and Pediatric Medicine Practices, and can be reached at these numbers: shiip-logo-2
