The greatest gift

Dear friend,

We at Champaign County Health Care Consumers think that health is the greatest gift!
As you prepare for the holidays, please consider giving the greatest gift – the gift of health – by making an end-of-the-year contribution to Champaign County Health Care Consumers (CCHCC).
(And, by the way, you can also purchase a CCHCC T-shirt as a cool holiday gift – proceeds benefit CCHCC!)
Every month, our dedicated and highly skilled staff help give the gift of health to hundreds of community members by providing free services to help people get the health care, health insurance, prescriptions, and other services and benefits that they need.
Every year, Champaign County Health Care Consumers helps our community members enroll in health insurance – whether it is Medicare, Medicaid, or ACA Marketplace plans.
But did you know that Champaign County Health Care Consumers (CCHCC) gets no federal or state funding to help community members enroll in health insurance? And yet, even without federal or state funding, CCHCC has been doing enrollment work for the Affordable Care Act’s Marketplace plans since the very beginning – October 2013. And our services are free!
CCHCC staff are federally Certified Application Counselors, and we provided our free services to help thousands of community members get, and keep, affordable health insurance. Besides ACA Marketplace plans, our staff also help with Medicare enrollment, Open Enrollment for Medicare Advantage and Part D plans, and Medicaid and Medicaid Managed Care plans. 
We help community members get covered during Open Enrollment, and beyond Open Enrollment – people need help year-round, when life circumstances change, and their health insurance options and needs change. 
How can we do this work without federal or state grants? The funding that supports CCHCC’s enrollment work comes from community support – including from individual contributions from people like  you!

You can help give the greatest gift – the gift of health!
Please consider making a special end-of-the-year contribution to CCHCC to help us continue to provide free services to hundreds of clients per month. We are not doctors and nurses, but our Community Health Workers help give our clients the gift of health by providing the services and support needed so that individuals and families can get health insurance and help to overcome the barriers they face in getting health care. These services are provided on a one-to-one basis, at no cost to the client, and are frequently very time-intensive.
And of course, if you – or anyone you know – needs help, please call us at (217) 352-6533 or come to our office at 44 E. Main Street in downtown Champaign. We can help!
We are a small organization, but with your help, we have a big impact!
Donate Now!
Thank you for all your support and your involvement!
Best wishes for a happy and healthy New Year in 2019.
