COLLABORATION, A KEY TO SUCCESS
Aligning services to reach more families
In an effort to align services, Polk County Family and Community Outreach and Northwest Human Services joined forces to reach out to and enroll individuals and families in the Marion and Polk County areas in health insurance.
Over the past six months, the two agencies met on a regular basis to discuss upcoming outreach opportunities such as health fairs and school events where they often share an outreach table to promote Cover Oregon and the work of each agency. In addition, they used their meeting time to brainstorm ways to reach the more difficult populations and plan shared events.
Their partnership has included activities such as shared fliers, which they distribute to businesses and doctor's offices and that detail various locations and hours in which application help is available. Both agencies refer clients to the easiest location for them, regardless of which agency will actually provide the enrollment assistance. This allows clients to access services in multiple locations, languages and at various hours most convenient to them.
The agencies also hosted a series of weekend and evening application fairs in various locations. Community members were able to come and get help filling out the application or talk with a licensed insurance agent about selecting a health plan. These events typically served between 30 and 50 families per event.
Overall, the success of this partnership allowed both agencies to share the workload and meet the needs of more families over a larger area than either agency would have been able to reach on their own.
