For Immediate Release: Richmond, VA — July 9, 2013 Advanced Patient Advocacy, LLC (APA) announced today that they have been selected by Connect for Health Colorado to serve as an Assistance Site and provide essential navigator duties to the citizens of Colorado as part of their state sponsored healthcare exchange. The announcement came in early June after APA submitted a collaborative proposal on April 19th with client facilities in the greater Denver area.
The Connect for Health Assistance Network combines the federally-required navigator program and the optional in-person assistance program into one program. The program is designed to maximize and build on existing expertise and resources that currently provide related health and health coverage services, or serve target populations such as the uninsured.
Health Coverage Guides will be one component of Connect for Health Colorado’s overall customer service strategy that includes self-help (online decision support tools), Customer Service Center Representatives (phone and online chat support) and licensed and certified health insurance agents and brokers.
“This is very exciting news. APA has been selected because of the hard work and dedication of our team and our experience in providing enrollment services. We are perfectly positioned to accept this opportunity and look forward to expanding our mission in Colorado and in other states.” said Wendy Bennett, President.
