Featured Program: The Medical-Legal Partnership of Lancaster County
When you visit a health care clinic, you do not expect to meet a lawyer. The reality is that many people suffering from chronic illness can find their health improved with the help of a public interest lawyer. Many elderly, disabled and low-income individuals and families have problems that adversely effect their health, which could be resolved through legal advocacy. The MidPenn Medical-Legal attorney in Lancaster County tackles problems that the health care team could not otherwise easily solve—intervening with landlords to ensure home repairs are made; restoring utility services; securing food stamps, health insurance coverage, and Social Security income for patients whose benefits have been denied or terminated.
