Have you heard about . . . ?

ABA Medical-Legal Partnerships Pro Bono Support Project

While physicians are able to assist with physical ailments, attorneys are able to assist with social ailments including  access to food stamps, free and appropriate public education, fight illegal evictions, and protect families from abuse for children suffering from malnutrition, homelessness and exposure to violence.

Medical-legal  partnerships nationwide have recaptured millions of dollars for hospitals through the successful appeal of wrongly denied Medicaid and Social Security Disability applications. Families get the insurance coverage they need and, through it, access to preventive primary care, while hospitals save money.
