Health Care

CLS provides information and advice to people with limited English proficiency (LEP) to help them get the health care services and benefits they need.  “Limited English proficiency” means a limited ability to speak, read, write, or understand English.

CLS also advocates on behalf of people who have been denied equal access to health care services or benefits because of their limited English proficiency.  CLS assists clients and service providers in overcoming language barriers at a variety of health care settings, including hospitals, clinics, medical offices, nursing homes, and welfare offices.
