Ensuring access to quality health care has been the cornerstone principle of community health centers. Access is defined in many ways, but one of the most important is communication. Patients need to be able to communicate with providers in a language with which they’re most comfortable.
In 2018, approximately 23% of all health center patients (over 6.7 million) received care in a language other than English.* Language Services Associates offers language solutions under contract with the Value in Purchasing (ViP) Program.
In recognition of health centers’ commitment to ensuring access to care, LSA is now offering enhanced discounts up to 14% lower than traditional ViP rates for over the phone (OPI) and video remote (VRI) interpretation and translation services.
