The focus of the financial counselor is to secure Federal and State funding (i.e. Social Security, Disability, Medicaid, or Kentucky DSH) for uninsured patients. The financial counselor utilizes a social services approach to help uninsured patients secure such funding. These efforts include face-to-face interviews with patients (even visiting patients at their homes to assist them with the application process), filing necessary paperwork on their behalf, and acting as a patient advocate.
