→What is CCTCU?..
Our mission is to serve the UCLA campus and the underserved communities through promoting health insurance literacy, collaborating with other organizations and community partners, and connecting individuals to affordable, high quality health care through enrollment.
We volunteer alongside medical and public health students from UCLA David Geffen Medical School, UCLA Fielding School of Public Health, and USC Keck School of Medicine. Our community partners include, but are not limited to Venice Family Clinic, Mobile Clinic Project at UCLA, and APHC.
All members will be trained as health access educators, and some will have the opportunity to be certified as CECs.
→What are Health Access Educators?
Health insurance can be a daunting subject. Many individuals lack the knowledge to utilize the health services they need yet have access to. Health Access Educators empower individuals with the knowledge to bridge that gap. Whether the service recipients are uninsured or already insured, HAEs will engage in conversations with individuals and lead workshops to equip them with the necessary tools and resources.
→What are CECs?
Certified Enrollment Counselors (CECs) are certified by the State of California to act on behalf of California's health insurance marketplace exchange to enroll community participants into a health insurance plan. CECs are legally able to handle confidential information, such as family income, but must maintain confidentiality and impartiality when discussing health insurance plans. They are held to the highest ethical and legal standards, and are expected to maintain integrity in all proceedings with our clients.
