Chester County has a health insurance champion that has quietly beaten paths to more than 12,000 people in need of critical health coverage, and last week La Comunidad Hispana was honored for its unrelenting, day-to-day pursuit of health solutions for non-English speakers, new immigrants and other community members unfamiliar with the insurance process.
“LCH’s award reflects the true impact that we make in Southern Chester County,” Chairman of the Board Paul Huberty said of receiving the 2015 Coverage Champion Award for Primary Care Excellence from the Pennsylvania Association of Community Health Centers. “The work of LCH’s social assistance team led to coverage for thousands of southern Chester County residents.”
The Kennett Square-based team members responsible for the award-winning work included social assistance team members and Certified Application Counselors Maria Mata, Anel Medina, Cristina Gonzalez, Rocio Rodriguez, Yessenia Tavarez and Eduardo Valdivieso.
“By providing families resources, access and support to obtain health insurance coverage, we are strengthening the community as a whole,” President and CEO Alisa Jones said
