Free Health Care for the Uninsured Is Coming to Connecticut in February
Date:1/15/2010

is important to note that being uninsured is not the same as being unemployed," Lamoureux said. "About 83 percent of uninsured people have jobs. At past C.A.R.E. Clinics, we found that many of the patients worked at two or more jobs but did not receive health insurance benefits. Some even worked as nurses or for insurance companies but still did not have insurance themselves."

During 2009, C.A.R.E. Clinics treated more than 1,700 uninsured patients in Houston, more than 1,000 in New Orleans and more than 1,000 in Little Rock at one-day clinics and almost 2,300 in Kansas City at a two-day clinic. At those events, more than 90 percent of the patients had three or more life-threatening conditions, such as cardio-vascular disease, hypertension, diabetes and pulmonary disease. Most of them either did not go anywhere previously for medical care or went to hospital emergency rooms. Many had not been examined by physicians in more than five years or in even more than 10 years.

The C.A.R.E. Clinics are made possible by hundreds of medical and non-medical volunteers. Medical volunteers needed for the Hartford clinic include doctors of medicine, doctors of osteopathy, nurse practitioners, physician's assistants, registered nurses, licensed vocational nurses, emergency medical technicians, medical administrators, licensed clinical social workers and more. Non-medical volunteers are needed to help with documentation, logistical support, patient intake and translation, as well as to be patient greeters and escorts. Help also is needed for setting up the clinic, as well as breaking it down.

Information for volunteers and patients is available online at
