Additional Information

NOTE: This is a grant-funded position for a one year period.

The Healthcare Services Coordinator (HSC) works in a clinical setting (Humana’s Continucare Medical Center clinics) to assist patients with food access and benefits assistance, such as SNAP, TANF, Florida KidCare, and Medicaid. In addition to providing clients with benefits and referral assistance, the HSC will enroll clients in FSF’s produce program at clinic sites. The HSC will forge relationships with community partners, volunteers, and food bank Partner Agencies (PAs) to increase opportunities for enrollment and access to benefit programs, including the cultivation of new clients. The HSC is responsible for maintaining all client files, providing leadership to colleagues by maintaining up-to-date knowledge and understanding of policy issues related to benefit programs, providing timely and accurate reports, and providing guidance to clients through understanding and interpreting benefits.  This project will include a research component, so the HSC will be responsible for working with Continucare staff to track relevant paperwork, as well as participant and survey data.
