Grant to fund UCD’s health care act outreach

From page A4 | May 19, 2013 |

Covered California, the state’s health insurance marketplace, has awarded a $1 million grant to the UC Davis Center for Reducing Health Disparities to fund education about the Affordable Care Act.

An estimated 5.3 million uninsured Californians will be eligible for coverage beginning Jan. 1.

Starting July 1, UCD plans to partner with El Concilio in a collaboration called “Nuestra Salud es Primero (Our Health Comes First)” to teach about 133,000 primarily Spanish-speaking Central Valley residents.

Fifty-four percent of the state’s Latinos are uninsured, according to Sergio Aguilar-Gaxiola, the center’s director and a clinical professor of internal medicine.

“We are looking forward to reaching out, engaging and educating underserved populations, and providing a bridge to their becoming insured and hopefully increasing their access to quality care and improving and maintaining their health and well-being,” he said in a news release.

The effort will involve the extensive use of promotoras: lay community outreach workers trained to provide basic health information. They will visit schools, churches, community centers and colleges, explain health-care terminology such as co-payments, premiums and how to select a health-care plan.
