Health Access and GHP combine services July 1

(GENESEE COUNTY, MI) Health Access and Genesee Health Plan (GHP) are uniting to improve access to health care services for uninsured, underinsured and underserved Genesee County residents.
Beginning Wednesday, July 1, those needing the services and resources of Health Access or GHP will go to one centralized location - GHP, which is at G3169 Beecher Road, Suite 204, in the Beecher Road Professional Building (on the south side of Beecher Road, three blocks west of Ballenger Highway, between the Genesys West Flint Health Center and Heritage Manor Nursing Home).

Services provided at GHP are:
enrollment in health care coverage (GHP, Medicaid, MIChild/Healthy Kids)
care management (obtaining medical equipment and services not covered by insurance, assistance with hospital charity care applications, linking clients with specialty services)
prescription assistance (including help with emergent needs for prescriptions)
information on obtaining eyeglasses
Resource Directory that lists services and resources available in Genesee County and how to find them
information on the One Stop Housing Resource Center and how to obtain those services

Staff services are free. Some programs may have minimal costs, but staff will work with clients to find ways to reduce those costs.

According to Andy Kruse, director of Health Access, "by combining services and resources at one site, we will be able to serve more people as seamlessly as possible, providing a much better patient experience."

Genesys - as part of its mission to improve the health of the community - remains committed to serving those in need, and will take on an even greater leadership role in the community to ensure efficient and cost effective service delivery for the underserved and uninsured, Kruse continues. "Our goal is to work even more closely and collaboratively with GHP, Greater Flint Health Coalition, Genesee County Health department, and other service agencies to impact more people in better ways so we can achieve 100 percent access to care."

GHP is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.. To reach GHP, call 810-232-7740. No appointments are needed.
