The Medicaid Outreach Program
Through a grant with The Department of Social Services, there
are Outreach Eligibility Workers (OEWs) at each CHC in the state.
The purpose of this program is to improve access to health services
for families and children eligible for Medicaid assistance.
The ultimate goal of these outreach workers is to increase the
identification of eligible families with children and get them
enrolled in the HUSKY program.
OEWs help clients at health centers enroll in the HUSKY program.
They also provide referrals to other services a client may need,
like food or housing assistance. CPCA provides educational training
for OEWs on chronic disease, preventive health, maternal and child
health, health literacy, cultural sensitivity, communication skills,
and outreach strategies to target populations. OEWs participate
in local health fairs, health initiatives such as flu or immunization
clinics, and other community events. Many of the OEWs are bilingual
and have cultivated acceptance and trust within their local communities,
allowing them to outreach special populations.
