What to Do about Your Healthcare

We all have heard that the House of Representatives voted to pass the American Health Care Act.  With all the news about healthcare, it’s hard to know what to do when it comes to your personal health.

We need to remember that there have not been any changes to our current health laws.  The legislation passed by the House must still be passed by the Senate and then signed by the President before it can become law.  That could take months and may or may not change the current laws.

We urge you to continue to enroll in health insurance and other programs for which you are eligible.  It is very important to stay enrolled in the health insurance coverage that you currently have.

But most importantly, do not delay getting care when it is needed. It is critically important that everyone continue to use and access their health benefits, and to get care when it is needed, before a condition becomes worse.

Cares Community Health is here to serve everyone and to help you get enrolled in the healthcare plan that best suits you and to provide you with access to quality care.

Call us at 916.443.3299 with any questions you might have.

Cares Community Health
Is Your Medical Home

Cares Community Health has been recognized as a Level III Patient Centered Medical Home by the National Committee for Quality Assurance. The patient-centered medical home—one of modern health care’s most important innovations—is a model of care that emphasizes care coordination and communication to transform primary care into “what you want it to be.”

NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home Recognition is the most widely-adopted model for transforming primary care practices into medical homes. Medical Homes provide primary health care that is relationship-based with an orientation toward the whole person. Partnering with patients and their families requires understanding and respecting each patient’s unique needs, culture, values, and preferences. The medical home practice actively supports patients in learning to manage and organize their own care at the level the patient chooses. Recognizing that patients and families are core members of the care team, medical home practices ensure that they are fully informed partners in establishing care plans.

Cares Community Health was also recognized as an Advocacy Center of Excellence – Silver Level by the National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC).  This is given to any Health Center that has achieved certain measures of advocacy success and demonstrated ongoing commitment to advocacy by making it an organizational priority.
