Community Health Navigation Services at Bassett
What is community health navigation?
Community health navigation is an organization that works to help patients obtain health insurance. Some patients who already have Medicaid seek help managing their health care, especially if they are living with health conditions. Navigation services provide people with a variety of helpful services and guidance to ensure that they are leading a safe and healthy lifestyle. These services are accomplished by navigators, who oversee and provide access to services individuals need to ensure that they receive all of the resources they need to stay healthy, out of the emergency room, and out of the hospital.
What is a navigator?
Navigators are a unique group of advocates that work directly with Medicaid-eligible patients to help them obtain insurance, navigate the health care system, access preventive care services, and meet goals that facilitate the maintenance of a safe and healthy lifestyle.
What is the cost?
This voluntary program is at no cost to the patient. Medicaid pays for the services offered with community health navigation.
