Getting Much-Needed Attention - Read the Latest Newsletter from Healthy Learners

Rhonda was concerned about her 4-year-old son, William, because he had attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) that caused him to have trouble focusing in school (4-year-old kindergarten). He also had multiple learning disabilities. Rhonda didn’t know what to do and felt overwhelmed because her family did not have health insurance and did not qualify for Medicaid. She was working 10-hour days making minimum wage and her husband also did not make much money. She asked William’s school for help and they referred her to Healthy Learners. The Healthy Learners Dillon office coordinated a doctor’s visit, paid for the visit and paid for the medication prescribed to William to help control his ADHD. Healthy Learners also covered eye care and glasses, dentist visits and additional doctor visits for William and his older brother Hunter. “I don’t know what we would have done without Healthy Learners because there was nowhere else to go,” said Rhonda. “We would have had to choose whether to buy groceries or pay for the doctor. If I had quit my job to qualify for Medicaid, we would have lost everything we had because we wouldn’t have been able to pay bills.” Today, William is in a first-grade special education class receiving speech therapy and therapy for a comprehension disability. The ADHD medication has helped him focus in school. Together with the specialized attention he receives in special education, his grades have improved tremendously. Both William and Hunter now receive Medicaid, but Rhonda is grateful for the help they received from Healthy Learners. “It’s hard to not get emotional when I talk about Healthy Learners. It’s hard to explain just how much they mean to me and our family. They gave me such peace of mind and lifted a tremendous pressure from us,” said Rhonda.

Healthcare Financial Management Association Highlights Providence Hospitals’ “29203” Healthy Columbia Initiative

In a novel pilot in South Carolina, leaders from Providence Hospitals and other area hospitals are working with insurance executives, church volunteers, Medicaid officials and others to learn if a grassroots campaign can improve the health of residents in ZIP code 29203, which is one of the poorest areas of the state. Using principles of community activism that have proven successful in organizing farm workers and electing government officials, the South Carolina Organizing for Health project is engaging community leaders and citizens to identify unique approaches to improving population health. After the project launches on March 3, about 300 volunteer organizers will begin helping individuals, groups and neighborhoods in 29203 develop wellness programs and other health-oriented initiatives. Read more about it on the Healthcare Financial Mangement Association website.
