Who We Serve
Our mission is to help people get access to affordable healthcare: health insurance, medicines and medical care.
Today, we pursue this mission in three ways: helping people enroll in health insurance, helping them to get free or discounted medicines, and assisting people in getting medical care, by enrolling them in Medicaid, helping them with Medicare payments or recommending a healthcare professional that accepts their insurance.
We are working with partners and grantees and applying our entrepreneurial know how to innovate and solve the problems of affordable care, one person at a time.
Why Veterans? Because we feel an obligation to help those who have put their lives on the line for our country. And many Veterans don’t have access to the kind of help we all think they do, due to the tiering system of the Veterans Administration. And many Veterans who are eligible for help are waiting on line for years. The average wait is 2 1/2 years. Ludicrous.
Litchfield County, CT and Dutchess County, NY
In 2014 and 2015 we will be focusing our health insurance efforts in two counties only. We will have four Assisters available for in-person help and we will be running informational and enrollment events in Litchfield County, CT and coordinating with the NY State Assisters.
Do You Need Help?
Even if you outside of Connecticut, it is our aim to help you. Call us and we will try to help, or connect you with someone who can. We’ll eventually be ready to help across the entire U.S.
