Now that the Affordable Care Act is in full effect, the Puerto Rican Cultural Center has expanded to help the community enroll with health insurance. State certified assisters (called Navigators) have completed rigorous and extensive training classes to understand the law. Navigators have been specifically trained to meet the needs of its community and make themselves available to educate everyone. Furthermore it is these assisters duty to locate the underserved and hard to reach populations and provide the Puerto Rican Cultural Center’s services conveniently. This means that you can find Navigators helping at local libraries, community centers, churches, laundromats, schools, and hospitals.
You can now find William Rivera, one of the educated Navigators, located at Presence St Mary St Elizabeth Hospital on the first and third weeks of the month. While at the hospital, William engages visitors to learn about the Affordable Care Act’s new laws. When someone arrives to the hospital for care and they don’t have insurance, William is nearby to help the individual enroll in health insurance. Don’t wait until an emergency happens to visit the hospital without health insurance, see your local navigator today!
Presence St Mary St Elizabeth Hospital is located at 2233 W Division Street. Please call 773.227.7794 for more information on finding your local Navigators and be on the lookout for the next convenient location to learn of the Affordable Care Act.
