Sarah Grady Ackerman talks with Marthias Sweet with Neighborhood Health Services about their social services program. Neighborhood Health Services provides primary and specialty medical care as well as social services for moms. Through the social services side, Neighborhood Health Services help moms apply for Medicare and Medicaid. They will help the mother apply for any services they may need to help them better themselves and know that they can still take care of their children at the same time. NHS is there to help walk them through the process. NHS helps the mother apply by having them fill out the application online through the computer. After they finish the application, NHS will have the mother come back in and assist her with the phone for the phone interview and help the mom fax over any information that may be needed to process the application. It's beneficial to see someone who doesn’t have a way to get to the doctor to be taken care of.
