Dearborn Press & Guide: ACCESS receives grant to help residents get health care coverage
U.S. Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-12th District) recently announced that the Arab Community Center for Economic & Social Services in Dearborn will receive a $555,711 Navigator grant from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.
The Navigator program supports community organizations that provide local, in-person assistance to help consumers browse, shop, and enroll in health insurance through the marketplace ahead of open enrollment for 2017, which runs from Nov. 1 to Jan. 31, 2017.
“ACCESS has played a vital role in helping families in our community enroll in quality health care plans that fit their needs and their budget,” Dingell said. “As open enrollment approaches, this grant will allow ACCESS to reach more members of the community so those who have questions or need help enrolling can get the insurance coverage they need. Thanks to ACCESS, residents should know that assistance is available to help them make the best coverage decisions for themselves and their families.”
ACCESS CEO Hassan Jaber said he is immensely proud of ACCESS’ work enrolling thousands of families in health care coverage, as well as connecting them to healthcare service providers. “We are grateful for this grant, which will allow us to continue doing this important work. We’re also incredibly grateful for Rep. Dingell’s support of our organization, and her steadfast commitment to ensuring access to quality healthcare for all Americans,” Jaber said.
