Coffee with Cassandra: Enrolling in the affordable care act

Before you start your workday, enjoy your morning coffee with brew from Methodist Healthcare Ministries. This is your daily dose of stories that speak to the heart of our organization, paired with your favorite cup of joe!

As an organization dedicated to creating access to care, we at Methodist Healthcare Ministries know there are many barriers low-income and uninsured families face when trying to find affordable health care services. The Affordable Care Act has given many uninsured people options to find affordable healthcare coverage, giving them access to preventive services and routine care, not to mention having coverage when urgent or critical care is needed.

I had the chance to sit down with Andy Hernandez, our community development manager, at our Wesley Health & Wellness Center which serves San Antonio’s Southside community, to discuss the timely topic of the Affordable Care Act.
