|Advisory: Carson to Tour Community Health Center, Meet With Local Center Directors on Health Care Reform|
June 29, 2009
WHEN: TOMORROW, Tuesday, June 30
HealthNet is Indiana’s largest federally qualified health care center, with five locations in Indianapolis that provide health services to more than 47,000 uninsured individuals every year.
“HealthNet and the other community health care centers are on the front lines of our broken health care system,” Congressman Carson said. “They’re seeing patients every day who walk through their doors with illnesses and injuries that have gotten worse simply because they wait until the last possible minute because of money concerns. Their work is living proof of the fact we have a disease care system—not a health care system.
“I want to hear from the leaders of these centers and understand the types of reforms that must be accomplished in order to benefit their struggling patients.”
