Dear prospective applicant.
Since 1993 MAGNUS has made a special effort to serve the underserved who have limited or no ability to speak English. The people in this population have historically realized poorer treatment outcomes despite having the same or similar healthcare coverage. Many organizations view this population as more expensive to care for as well. Although language services are mandated in many cases by federal law, many times conditions go undiagnosed and untreated due to language barriers.
In an effort to change this, MAGNUS is pleased to introduce a program to enable and assist organizations to reach out to some of the most disadvantaged among us. In a time of shrinking budgets, MAGNUS is applying its expertise and resources to help demonstrate the value of language services to ensure patients utilize services efficiently, including accessing preventive care in order to reduce overall system costs.
Our mission is ‘To ensure that you get your message heard, read and understood in almost any language’. By offering our Grant Application Guide for prospective applicants, we aim to focus our resources to reduce the language and culture gap. Through this program, any organization can apply for professional language assistance. By assisting you in clearly communicating with non-English speakers, we hope that your mission can be achieved as well.
