Clínica Tepeyac Navigates Clients Through the Difficult Landscape of Medicaid, Medicare, and Private Insurance

We all know how hard it is to understand our insurance, whether public (Medicaid, Medicare), private, or a combination. Deductibles, subsidies, co-payments... insurance is hard.

Clínica Tepeyac helps people navigate this difficult system every day. “Many of our clients have never had a medical home, so they lack the most basic knowledge about insurance. They need one-on-one assistance that includes detailed information about how insurance works,” says Angelica Barraza, Enrollment Specialist.

Clínica client Holly used Urgent Care for her medical needs, because she lacked insurance. She realized that she could not have her needs met affordably this way but was afraid it would take months to enroll in Medicaid. After seeking out clinics online, Holly secured a same-day appointment with Clínica’s enrollment
specialists and walked out with her Medicaid enrollment complete!

Holly says she now has peace of mind that she can get the affordable, competent health care she needs.
