Newly uninsured up 50% at community clinics in California
San Francisco Chronicle, September 9, 2009
California's 800 community clinics and health centers have reported on average a 50% increase in newly uninsured patients this year, according to the California Primary Care Association. But despite some federal stimulus funding, the increased patient load is straining the already struggling safety net, which include California's 19 public hospitals. State and local budget cuts have reduced public funding, while free clinics have reported dramatic declines in donations.
