Access to health care is part of the path out of poverty; such access allows children to attend school and learn. It also allows adults to work and stay healthy. GLSP works to secure medical coverage to preserve the security and stability of families, healthy futures for children and comfort in later life. We represent families and individuals with issues related to Medicaid and Medicare, as well as families with children needing coverage under PeachCare or the Georgia Pediatric Program. GLSP represents residents of long-term care facilities to gain and maintain eligibility for Medicaid. We also represent long term care residents to prevent unlawful discharge. We provide brochures, flyers, and other community outreach materials for all forms of Medicaid and provide community education sessions.
