For a look at how your donations may be used, please read about our patient Karen: 

Petaluma Health Center knows that health insurance is important in ensuring timely access to primary and preventive health care services, but for expecting mothers, health coverage is critical in ensuring timely access to prenatal care and a healthy, full-term pregnancy. One of our patients, Karen, knows firsthand that the health insurance enrollment process can be complicated, overwhelming, and difficult to navigate, but she also knows that she can rely on Petaluma Health Center for assistance in accessing health insurance and other local resources.

Our energetic team of qualified and knowledgeable Certified Enrollment Counselors (CECs) and AmeriCorps Service Members diligently work to facilitate access to quality health care, insurance and local resources for all members of the community, especially the uninsured and underinsured. Our CEC and AmeriCorps Service Member, Liseth, met with Karen, provided her with an overview of Karen’s subsidy eligibility and assisted her throughout the enrollment process.

Once Karen’s baby was born, our CECs assisted her in ensuring that her baby girl had health insurance coverage and received all her well-child visits and immunizations in a timely manner. Karen and her beautiful daughter now both have the coverage they need and the peace of mind to enjoy this very special time in their lives. Karen is confident that her daughter will grow up healthy and happy with the support of Petaluma Health Center behind her. In addition to Karen and her baby, Petaluma Health Center’s Certified Enrollment Counselors have successfully helped over 15,000 families enroll or re-enroll in health coverage since October 2013.

Your generous donations support our community outreach and enrollment efforts and help ensure that our community, and, in particular, our medically-vulnerable populations, such as children and pregnant women, obtain health coverage and access quality primary and preventive health care services. Your commitment to the well-being of our community has been invaluable, and greatly appreciated.
