Benefits and Health Insurance Enrollment

 

Helping Individuals And Families

Enhancing access to benefits and health insurance is critical to Seedco’s strategy of helping individuals and families move towards self-sufficiency. Our approach tackles multiple issues:

  • Education and outreach to counter lack of awareness about programs, misunderstanding of eligibility requirements, and stigma on accessing assistance
  • Embedding Seedco staff and outreach events in community-based settings to benefit from local partners’ trusted relationships and to provide ease of access
  • Using Seedco’s proprietary EarnBenefits Online software to leverage the technology’s convenience, accuracy, and timeliness

Starting in 2019, Seedco’s Connecting West Tennessee Kids to Coverage provides outreach, education, and enrollment activities to connect families in need to Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). The program targets Shelby and Tipton Counties. Seedco is working with local health departments, social service providers, community centers, schools, and health providers to inform families about the availability of free or low-cost health coverage, identifying eligible children, and assisting families with applying and renewing.  This program is generously funded by the Department of Health and Human Services, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.

SNAP Outreach

Many working families, unemployed, seniors, and others struggle to put food on the table. Since 2011, Seedco has helped thousands of low-income families  across the country access vital food benefits. Seedco’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) Outreach is focused on Baltimore residents, prevents hunger, helps seniors and families make healthier food choices, and counters misinformation and stigma associated with receiving SNAP benefits, formerly known as food stamps. The barriers are numerous: knowledge, language, and education limitations; pervasive myths; and difficulty accessing in-person assistance. We overcome these barriers by working at community-based sites, providing culturally competent services, and conducting wide outreach and information sharing. In addition, Seedco uses its EarnBenefitsOnline tool to screen individuals for a range of other benefits for which they may qualify.

In collaboration with CASH Campaign of Maryland, Bon Secours Community Works, and Centro de Ayuda, Seedco disseminates information, provides SNAP eligibility screenings, and directly assists people with completing the SNAP application.  This program is supported by the State of Maryland Department of Human Resources.

Employer Resource Network

The NYC Employer Resource Network (NYC-ERN) is a community of innovative New York City businesses who are improving productivity and morale by investing in their workforce.

This affordable benefit is designed for employers to support and stabilize their workforce. Member businesses have access to a Seedco Success Coach who is available to meet employees onsite and virtually.  Success Coaches serve as impartial, confidential advisors that connect employees to resources and collaborate with them on solutions on work life challenges.  The ERN allows both employees and their supervisors to focus on business needs rather than employee personal crises. In turn, the ERN reduces turnover, improves employee morale, and enhances company loyalty.
