A FREE Health Clinic

Bridges to Health

Attention!

Bridges to Health is a free clinic - we are NOT insurance.  You may be required by the government to purchase health insurance.  If you have questions about whether or not you need to enroll in health insurance, or if you need help enrolling, please contact one of the community resources listed to the right side of the page or contact us at Bridges.

Open Enrollment for 2017 has ended.

One of the most common misconceptions about how the United States will look after the full implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) is that there will no longer be a need for free clinics.   This misconception couldn’t be farther from the truth.  Research has shown that even after full implementation of the ACA, an estimated 31-39 million people will still be without access to health insurance.   

Many of our patients qualify for an exemption from the individual mandate to have health insurance.  Despite the notion that all Americans will be required to have health insurance after the full implementation of the ACA, there are dozens of exemptions which apply to most of our patients (e.g. those who are homeless; who have had medical bills in the last 24 months they could not pay; or who do not file a tax return because their income is too low).  Not surprisingly, many of our patients fall into one of these categories, which is why they originally sought out Bridges to Health’s assistance.

With the recent expansion of HIP 2.0 in our state, we are working with local resources to help people enroll and are helping patients transition if they are eligible, and serving as a "Bridge" in care until their applications are approved.  As is always, we are flexing to meet the need of the health care gaps in our community.  

We are still a safety-net clinic – a place for people who have no other option for their medical care – and we will continue to work toward a healthier Grant County, one patient at a time.

Thank you for your continued support in keeping Grant County residents healthy.

With gratitude,

Bridges to Health
