navigator story: pa, christen and glafira, open cities health center

pa, christen and glafira

At Open Cities Health Center (OCHC), navigators Pa, Christen and Glafira have one goal in mind: to improve the health of their community.

“We are the first point of contact with MNsure for most patients and many of our colleagues and supervisors, peers and friends,” said Glafira. ‘We assist with the MNsure application and provide follow up services in order to ensure that our clients get the health coverage they deserve.”

All three say working one-on-one with individuals and families to apply for health insurance is a rewarding experience
