504HealthNet has three main program areas: advocacy, outreach and education. Through advocacy we work to advance policies at the state and national level that improve quality, affordable health insurance and health care services for all, especially low-income populations. Our efforts include educating and discussing health care policy with Louisiana elected officials and organizing public rallies and forums facilitated through our local campaign called, www.keeplacovered.org. Most recently, we have been focused on preventing cuts to the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and replacement plans that attempt to cut any funding or benefits from the Medicaid program. Through our outreach program, we work directly with the community to provide education about primary care & health insurance options. We directly connect them to these and other resources. Finally, we support the clinics in our network by creating operational efficiency, building capacity, and providing continuing education for clinic staff. 504HealthNet is uniquely positioned to create sustainable community improvement in New Orleans because of it's ability to work effectively at all levels of the health system.
