Advocating for Patient Health and Wellness

At Healthfinders Collaborative, we do our best to advocate for the health and wellness of HealthFinders patients. We provide assistance based on each patient’s specific needs, while connecting patients to community resources and social service programs in Rice County. We also help patients enroll in healthcare insurance through MNSure. HFC has MNsure approved navigators that can help with enrollment and other MNsure procedures (See below). We then follow-up with the appropriate agencies to help ensure that applications and enrollments are completed as needed.

Food, Housing and Social Services Support

In addition to MNsure, HFC’s advocates assist patients with other services supportive to their overall health including food and housing support, social services, among others. If HFC advocates aren’t able to assist, they work with partners to connect patients to the services they need.

Community Engagement

In addition to our core advocacy, some of our staff also attend Growing-Up Healthy neighborhood team meetings to engage in discussions with Rice County Residents about health topics through our Community Conversations Program. The staff are able to bring community feedback to us and assist us in understanding issues, and engaging the larger community that HFC serves.

Schedule a MNSure Appointment

We have MNsure approved navigators that can help with enrollment and other MNsure procedures. As Minnesota Healthcare Application Agents, we help patients who qualify, get enrolled in coverage programs through our MDH-certification. Our efforts include helping patients apply, and assisting patients with patient-assistance programs. We help to ensure that applications and enrollment are completed.
