Teller County Public Health - Health Navigation Team


Navigating through the healthcare maze to get clients the healthcare they deserve

A Health Navigator can help a client help themselves to achieve the best possible healthcare outcome.  The Navigator takes into account the health and well-being of the whole person including physical and emotional health.

We can help teach you how to be your own best advocate.  Remember, the person with the most power over your health is you.
 • Identify what questions to ask your doctor
 • How to keep records to assist in your care
 • Communicating with your pharmacist

Who do we help?
Medicaid and Medicaid-eligible clients and their families.

What do we do?

Set up a medical home - We help you find a medical provider who is right for you and your family and who can oversee all your family's medical needs.  We can also help connect you with dentists and/or specialists for family members with special needs.

Identify challenges -

Transportation, finances, knowing who to trust for your family's care and where to find the care you need can be difficult.  As navigators, we can help with solutions to these problems and teach you how to problem solve on your own.

Identify Community Resources -

Sometimes, the help you need is available but you don't know who to ask or where to find it...let us help with setting up transportation, housing concerns, food, clothing, behavioral health referrals, etc.
