Grace Medical Home Medical-Legal Partnership
The Grace Medical Home Medical-Legal Partnership (GMH-MLP) provides free civil legal assistance to low-income patients of Grace Medial Home in an effort to improve their health. One of our lawyers is onsite at the clinic four days a week to accept referrals and provide consultations to Grace Medical Home patients.
Only current patients of Grace Medical Home are eligible for legal assistance under this project.
How do you get help through this program?
When patients register for medical assistance at Grace Medical Home, they fill out a social needs questionnaire explaining their legal needs. Legal needs are also identified by healthcare providers and other staff during patients’ office visits. Once a legal need is identified, the Grace Medical Home staff will refer the patient to the GMH-MLP onsite lawyer.
If you are a patient at Grace Medical Home and would like a consultation with the GMH-MLP lawyer, ask any staff member at the clinic to make a referral.
Grace Medical Home is a non-profit medical home serving the working, low-income, uninsured residents of Orange County. For more information on eligibility and to register, contact Grace Medical Home. You can find them online at https://www.gracemedicalhome.org/.
