Engagement Solutions


Currently, low-income families are eligible for a host of programs run by the government and non-profit agencies. The task of navigating the available programs in their area often becomes cumbersome. 
Being unable to meet your basic needs like housing, food, employment can have a negative impact on the state of a person’s physical health as well. 
In 2018, 1 in 5 people in Connecticut were enrolled in Medicare or Medicaid
. Our state spent $8 billion on their healthcare, $4 billion of which was on acute care spending. 
The Center Medicare and Medicaid is waking up to this crisis and is engaged in pilot studies to connect patients to these basic needs that have been termed the social determinants of health.
