This issue brief examines some of the current challenges in health center outreach and enrollment (O&E) and the ways in which medical-legal partnerships (MLPs) can support health center staff and patients to improve O&E efforts. Three case studies are presented to highlight how health centers with existing MLPs are improving O&E. In addition, they show that access to MLP services are expanded through collaboration between health insurance assisters and MLP attorneys. Key findings are presented to guide future partnerships and practice.
