The Problem: Access to HealthcareIf you look around, it is not difficult to find the medically underserved. They live in every city, town and village in America. Here in Monroe and Owen counties, nearly 12,000 adults under 200% poverty are without any type of health insurance.Although health care reform includes coverage for the uninsured, it does not go into effect until 2014. Even then there will be many who will continue to remain uninsured. Concerned citizens need to find other ways to provide the medically underserved with the services they need.One answer to this health care crisis is Volunteers in Medicine of Monroe County a free medical clinic for adults without health insurance or the economic means to pay for health care.ServicesOperated by volunteers and with the support of the community and Bloomington Hospital, the Volunteers in Medicine clinic provides free, quality primary and preventive care for both chronic and acute illnesses. For a complete list of services to be provided at the clinic, see the Services and Eligibility page of the website.
