Huddling up for Eugene in West Baltimore
When Eugene has a medical need, he calls up Dr. Tyler Gray. Dr. Gray helps him manage ongoing health challenges, like his high blood pressure. And if something unexpected happens, like when Eugene had a stroke a few months ago, Dr. Gray helps him through that, too. But like most of us, sometimes Eugene has more than just medical needs. Luckily, Eugene is on a care team.
Going to the doctor can be a whole production. You have to figure out who takes your insurance, what paperwork you need, where to fill your prescriptions, and, if you’re really sick, how to see a specialist. Imagine going through these steps in another language or after experiencing one of the most difficult situations of your life. Ieshia joined a workgroup to help clients do just that.
James Barnes joined staff, board and clients to make sure that everyone who comes to us gets the care they need. “When people need help, we won’t turn them away,” Board member and client James Barnes says. “If we can’t meet your needs, then we will find someone who will. The goal is to never leave someone stranded.” We formed a workgroup to develop guidance around how to determine a person's eligibility.
