Health Access Programs
We offer a variety of programs aimed at improving the health of Connecticut immigrants, as well as access to high quality, affordable healthcare.
Make the Road Connecticut works to guarantee equal rights, access, and improved healthcare for low-income, Latinx, and immigrant Connecticut residents. We provide one-on-one assistance navigating Husky health insurance enrollment, particularly for CT residents who recently became eligible through the Husky expansion to undocumented children and pregnant and postpartum individuals. We also provide hospital bill negotiation support, health system navigation, education and information on health concerns affecting our immigrant and Latinx populations, support to help find low and no-cost care for the uninsured, and more.
BUILDING HEALTHY COMMUNITIES
WHAT WE DO
HOW WE ARE HELPING
Make the Road Connecticut reaches over 1200 people annually by providing crucial information and resources on improving health, accessing low-cost care, and navigating the health insurance coverage system. Our Community Health Workers provide one-on-one assistance in enrolling in Husky/Medicaid, particularly for undocumented children and pregnant and postpartum individuals who recently became eligible for coverage thanks to advocacy efforts by the Husky for Immigrants Coalition. We also provide education and training on issues affecting our communities, including health and nutrition, vaccine access and education, and prevention and treatment of common illnesses. We link our communities to much-needed resources and programs by hosting health fairs and events where our members can get information on healthcare resources and opportunities in their own language. Our CHWs, or promotoras, provide culturally and linguistically appropriate information and resources, creating a bridge between the community and the health resources that they need.
