"My neighbor told me about ICHS and their services."
ICHS has been helpful because they accept Medicare and Medicaid when other clinics won’t and I get the medication I need.

My name is Zhi Xiang Ye and I am 81 years old. I immigrated to the United States 20 years ago from China with my wife. That was back in 1998 and I didn’t have a job. My daughter was already here at the time, so she helped me apply for state health insurance and I paid $10 a month for the premium.
I got a job later in child care, where I prepped food for the kids. I worked there for 12 years and they offered health insurance. When I retired, I was back on state health insurance, Medicaid and Medicare.
I have many health problems. I have constipation issues, knee problems and have to use oxygen tanks. I need to use canes to walk around or use public transportation because I get dizzy when I go too far. My wife helps me get around, but it has been worse in the past few years.
My neighbor told me about International Community Health Services (ICHS) and their services. ICHS has been helpful because they accept Medicare and Medicaid when other clinics won’t and I get the medication I need.
