Philadelphia health clinics to charge for care
Philadelphia Inquirer, September 17, 2009
The Philadelphia Board of Health has approved a sliding scale of fees to be charged to uninsured people for care at the city's eight primary-care health centers. The fees—from $5 to $20 per visit—were announced earlier this year as part of the city budget. The health clinics have been free to the uninsured for years, and no date has been set for when the fees will be imposed.
