Healthy Pathways

The healthcare system can be complex and confusing. We are here to help you understand the system and help you take full advantage of services available to you. Healthy Pathways is a local partnership that provides free nurse health coaching and health navigation services for people living in Fillmore, Gage, Jefferson, Saline, and Thayer Counties.

Our goal is to help people:

  • Get care
  • Stay well
  • Build healthy communitieshealthy pathways logo

Your health care provider (doctor, nurse practitioner, or physician assistant) or a representative from a local hospital may refer you to the program. You will receive a phone call from a nurse health coach to check on you and see if we can help you. You may also call and refer yourself if you are interested in these services. There is no charge to participate in this program.

  • Do you have questions about your health or need help getting into a doctor?
  • Do you need help finding what services are available to you?
  • Have you been diagnosed with a long term illness?
  • Do you have trouble affording the prescriptions needed to maintain your health?
  • Did you know that if you make less than $23,000 a year individually or $31,000 as a family you may qualify for medication assistance through a national pharmaceutical company?

For Healthy Pathways referrals call 402-223-0089.
