The LPHIC Healthcare Literacy & Advocacy Task Force recently surveyed 26 organizations in May 2024 to evaluate the availability of, need for and capacity to provide Healthcare Literacy and Advocacy (HL&A) support services in La Plata County. HL&A services provide residents with support and assistance accessing and navigating our local healthcare system and include healthcare insurance/financial support and healthcare navigation. Typically, HL&A services are free and are provided by case managers, nurse navigators, social workers, community health workers, insurance agents, and others embedded in community organizations.
