Eligibility specialists are a key part of a thriving community health center. Julia Shi, ICHS health center manager of the International District Medical & Dental Clinic, stops in the hallway to share more about the role of Eligibility Specialists while leading Representative Nicole Macri on her tour of the clinic.

Representative Nicole Macri (WA 43rd Legislative District) visited the International Community Health Services (ICHS) flagship clinic in the International District on September 20 to learn firsthand how ICHS’ Federally Qualified Health Center model of care serves communities.

Representing Washington state’s 43rd legislative district, covering parts of central and north Seattle, Rep. Macri also sits on the Washington State Legislature’s Health Care and Wellness Committee.

To reduce barriers, ICHS also offers enabling services at no charge, such as translation and interpretation as well as assistance in identifying eligibility for and enrolling in low-cost or free health insurance and other programs to address the social determinants of health barriers.
