In 2014 alone, LCH provided 12,128 assistance visits to people who needed help obtaining health insurance.

Alisa Jones, president and CEO, said she is very proud of the LCH staff that work every day to navigate the unique challenges of the health insurance marketplace on behalf of non-English speakers, new immigrants, and other community members new to the insurance process.

“By providing families resources, access, and support to obtain health insurance coverage, we are strengthening the community as a whole,” Jones said in the release.

Social assistance team members and Certified Application Counselors Maria Mata, Anel Medina, Cristina Gonzalez, Rocio Rodriguez, Yessenia Tavarez, and Eduardo Valdivieso were recognized at the PACHC Conference APEX Awards luncheon on Wednesday, Oct. 7.
