The need for our services
The Need for Our Services

  • The growing, well-documented need for quality health care services for the low income uninsured in Fairfax County is clear.

    • More than 33,000 individuals in Fairfax County who earn 200% or less of the federal poverty level are uninsured According to the Virginia Atlas for Community Health.

    • Even though the poverty rate in Fairfax County is well below the national average, the number of persons below poverty is larger than or equal to the 2004 population in 98 of the 134 local jurisdictions in Virginia (Weldon Cooper Center for Public Service, 2004 Provisional Population Estimates.)

    • High rates of unemployment and an influx of new immigrants have led to an increase in the number of uninsured in Virginia (Virginia Health Care Insurance and Access Survey, 2004).

The need for our services1
The Need for Our Services

  • The lack of care for the uninsured has many consequences on public health and real costs to the community.

    • A May, 2005 report released by the Urban Institute indicated that nearly half of uninsured, non-elderly adults report a chronic health condition. Due to the high cost of treatment, almost half of those questioned forgo medical care and prescription drugs to address these conditions. (Hadley, Jack, “Insurance Coverage, Medical Care Use, and Short-term Health Changes Following an Unintentional Injury or the Onset of a Chronic Condition,” JAMA, 2007).

    • The uninsured receive fewer preventative services, less regular care for chronic disease and poorer care in the hospital (IOM, A Shared Destiny – Effects on Uninsurance on Individuals, Families and Communities, March 200.

    • Controlled for an increase in population, the Kaiser State Health Fact Summary reports a 15% growth of emergency room visits over the past 7 years.

    • “Good health and meeting developmental milestones in infancy and childhood affect individuals’ educational attainment, earning capacity, and long-term health.” (IOM, Hidden Costs, Value Lost: Uninsurance in America, 2003).
