Over 375,000 people in Bexar County are currently without health insurance and lack access to preventive health care that most of us take for granted. Because of the lack of affordable medical insurance, thousands of people suffer with health issues that go undiagnosed and untreated. Many of these individuals wind up in the emergency room at a high cost for the individual and for the community.
OUR UNIQUE RESPONSE:
Faith Family Clinic has become the medical home to over 5,000 members of the working community who do not have insurance to afford the high costs of medical care today.
Faith Family Clinic is supported by the sacrificial gifts of individuals who care about their neighbors and by grants from various foundations and healthcare institutions who see the benefit of the services we provide for the working poor of our community. Since we do not accept patients with Medicare, Medicaid, CHIPS, or private insurance, we are dependent upon community partners who see the benefit of affordable, quality medical care.
Various collaborative partners such as Baptist Health System allow us to leverage our limited resources and expand our capacities. For more information about these community partners CLICK HERE to see our partners page.
