Medical care in the United States has become an increasingly pressing problem. With skyrocketing insurance costs that are unaffordable to many millions of Americans in a quickly dwindling middle class with high unemployment, basic medical care is simply out of reach for too many. Going without preventative care and failing to obtain basic care for small health problems before they grow into major, expensive problems is one of the issues that drives health care costs so high today. |
One answer to meeting these vital needs to the medically underserved are community based health centers that are designed to provide quality family health and dental services regardless of insurance status and ability to pay. Along with health care services that include pre-natal care, comprehensive primary services, and dental care for children and adults, these community health centers provide educational assistance to encourage and enhance healthy lifestyles. They accept private medical insurance and government funded programs such as Medicare and Medicaid for those who have it, and offer reduced fees for those with low income under a sliding-fee discount plan program.
Community based health centers are growing in number around the country to address the health care needs of the general community and those who have found themselves priced out of the system. Providing primary services to all, regardless of income and ability to pay, reduces the strain on costly hospital emergency room resources that drive up medical costs. They put quality health and dental care and preventative educational services within reach of every person in need.
