Texas Clinic Provides Health Care for All

Diario La Estrella, Posted: Jan 03, 2009

DALLAS -- In Fort Worth, Texas, the Albert Galvn Clinic is addressing the health care crisis of growing numbers of residents without health insurance by opening their services to all who need care, whether insured or not, according to a special report in Diario la Estrella. The clinic has been caring for some 6,000 patients each year, and the majority are uninsured and low income. The clinic has a sliding scale that is based on the level of patients' income and the size of their family. A clinic visit could cost just $25. Patients are not asked if they are citizens or required to show identification. Only 7 percent of the clinic's patients have private health insurance.
