» Is there still a need for free healthcare services now that the Affordable Care Act has been implemented?

One of the most common misconceptions about how healthcare will look after the full implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) is that there will no longer be a need for clinics to provide charity care as a member of the safety net. However, according to the National Association of Free and Charitable Clinics (NAFC), many individuals find themselves in a ‘coverage gap’, where their income is too high to qualify for Medicaid but too low to receive the public subsidies and tax credits necessary for them to purchase insurance on the health care marketplaces. As a result, charitable clinics continue to be a vital – and often primary – source of affordable health care.

According to an August 2015 study published by the ADPH Office of Primary Care and Rural Health, 18.1% of Cullman County residents under 65 years of age are uninsured and that equates to 12,000+ people without health insurance. Cullman is ranked 12th in state meaning there are only 11 out of 67 counties in state that have a higher uninsured population.
