People’s Community Clinic after the Affordable Care Act (ACA)

Is my gift still needed?

 

As you may already know, the State of Texas has opted not to take advantage of the ACA’s Medicaid expansion thereby denying Texas’ poorest citizens the opportunity for assistance from Medicaid. Texas also decided against creating a health insurance exchange to market subsidized coverage. This means that the state’s percentage of uninsured residents remains one of the highest in that nation, leaving 4.6 million Texans without coverage.

 

Safety net clinics like People’s need additional capacity to meet the fast-growing demand for the affordable health care they provide.  With your continued support, People’s will be able to meet that challenge. To make a gift, please click here.
