Health care for the uninsured

In a healthy community, everyone has access to healthcare.

Our society faces a major crisis: providing medical care for the uninsured and the under-insured. The Affordable Care Act has increased insurance coverage for millions of people, but there are people who remain uninsured and/or cannot afford the premiums and deductibles. Legacy is actively involved in programs to help these people receive care.

Legacy Health is doing its part by providing charity care for those in need. In addition, we partner with community organizations to expand access to health services.

Safety-net clinics

Each Legacy hospital supports free safety-net clinics and care networks for the uninsured. We also give clinics in-kind lab and imaging services, charity care, office space and/or cash donations.
