Letter to the Editor: Navigators Can Help

leslie's letter to the editor

CHC’s Leslie Bachurski wrote a Letter to the Editor in the Post-Gazette to ensure that people know the value of Health Care Navigators in navigating the costs and options:

“The Affordable Care Act created navigators, unbiased educators who provide free assistance to consumers and clearly explain in understandable terms one’s choices. Consumers whom I assist often have a limited budget for medical spending and may not be savvy with health care terminology. Making sure doctors are covered and understanding prescription costs and how much an ER visit will likely cost are really important. The benefits of sitting down with a navigator are that all of these important details are explained.”
