Bet Tzedek legal Services (“BTLS”) operates a ground-breaking medical-legal partnership (“MLP”) with Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, a safety-net hospital located in unincorporated south Los Angeles, between the cities of Torrance and Carson and withannual visits that include 19,000 admissions, 100,000 emergency visits, and 280,000 outpatient visits. BTLS’sMLP has become a critical resource to the low-income, often elderly and/or undocumented community members treated at Harbor. With nearly 75% of Harbor’s patients relying on Medi-Cal and other public benefits, Bet Tzedek now seeks to expand the services currently provided by hiring an attorney to work collaboratively with current BTLS and Harbor staff to represent individuals in their SSI, CalWORKS, Medi-Cal, CAPI, and other public benefits matters, including appeals of denials, overpayment cases, and other forms of assistance. While the attorney will be responsible for conducting intakes and representing clients on a wide array of legal issues, the attorney’s works will serve as the cornerstone of the program’s public benefits advocacy efforts to help stabilize community member’s financial well-being and health.
