HGH Partners with State Welfare to Facilitate Medicaid Application

Beginning in November, Humboldt General Hospital will become the newest venue on the Division of Welfare and Support Services calendar.

Each month, Cyndi Carpluk, a DWSS eligibility worker, stations at different community venues throughout Humboldt County to help residents complete Medicaid and other applications.

HGH has agreed to host Carpluk three days each month—a decision that Business Office and Patient Access Department Manager Shauna Barsanti said will be a great benefit to patients.

“One of our biggest jobs is helping patients find the right financial resources to cover their medical care,” she said. “This new partnership with DWSS is going to be such a big help.”

She added, “Having a rep onsite who can help patients complete Medicaid applications will expedite the entire process.”

Medicaid is a joint federal and state program that helps with medical costs for some people with limited income and resources. Medicaid also offers benefits not normally covered by Medicare, like nursing home care and personal care services.

As one of 60 DWSS eligibility workers who travel throughout the state to provide assistance, Carpluk’s role will be to walk potential Medicaid recipients through the application process.

Beginning in November, Carpluk will be available at Humboldt General Hospital during normal business hours on Monday, November 13; Wednesday, November 15; and Wednesday, November 29.

Patients will be seen on a first-come, first-served basis; there is no charge for the service.

For more information on the DWSS Medicaid application services now available at Humboldt General Hospital, please call HGH Business Office Manager Shauna Barsanti at (775) 623-5222, ext. 1107.
