ST. PAUL, Minn.—MNsure navigator partner West Side Community Health Services will be at the West Side Cinco de Mayo Festival in St. Paul to provide bilingual MNsure assistance. The festival is Saturday, May 5.
"West Side is a longtime navigator partner of ours and we recognize the important role they play in cultivating the well-being of their community," said MNsure Acting CEO Nate Clark. "Through their work with MNsure, they are helping people find the security of health coverage."
West Side Community Health Services is the largest community health care center in Minnesota and has been involved in promoting health care for all since their founding in 1972.
“West Side’s mission is to improve the well-being of our community through healthcare for all," says Paige Anderson Bowen, Chief Advancement Officer at West Side Community Health Services. "A core component of our work to achieve this mission is linking our patients to accessible health coverage through MNsure. West Side serves over 36,000 patients each year; no one is denied care for an inability to pay. Through our longstanding partnership with MNsure we can connect eligible patients to health coverage, which contributes to longer-term financial stability and improved health outcomes for our patients and families."
