LANIER COUNTY, GA (WALB) - Multiple groups in South Georgia are coming together to help people understand and complete the Medicaid enrollment process.
South Georgia Medical Center is partnering with Med Assist for a drive to help you apply.
Amy Griffin, with the Lanier Family Connection, discussed the importance of this type of event.
“Working with families, we see a lot where they don’t know how to fill out or complete the application or understand the process. This is going to be helpful because there’ll be somebody that can right there, to help them through each step," said Griffin.
Griffin said without Medicaid, many people simply will not get the care that they need. She said even if you don’t qualify for the program, they have other resources available to help those in need.
