TAXONOMY SECTION II PART I-A.1

(Family Medicine Center Payor Mix)

SD II.1 (L7) Do you regard your residency program as a key access point for health care services to a disenfranchised population?  Yes __ No __

If yes, explain:

Yes:

Dayton

Decatur                        (No doctor Emergency Room admits)

Indiana U Methodist     (Urban population)

Kansas U                     (Yes, mostly acute and critically ill – No, less routine healthcare)

Klamath Falls               (We and the local FQHC provide most access for Medicaid and Uninsured population)

Mercer                         (Our walk-in clinic (open 8 am to 7 pm) provides care to any patient unable to see their personal physician in a timely manner)

Riverside                      (It is a safety net hospital program)

Salt Lake City              (1/2 FPR co-located in 2 CHC sites serving underserved; 1.2 FPR located in “private” university facilities)

UC Irvine                     (Our family practice center is a federally-qualified health center.  It is the major outpatient source of health care for uninsured/ underinsured patients in our health system)

UC San Diego              (We are the only ones in the university who provide primary care for uninsured)

Whittier

No:

MCE Birmingham

Lexington

Yes (site-visited profiled programs):

Northridge                    (On two levels:  we act as the panel admitting physicians for hospital emergency room including obstetrics and pediatrics; and as an outpatient family practice center with a large medical and underserved population. The FPR will see anyone for acute care. Do the EMTLA (emergency room and clinic) rules affect other programs as much as at Northridge Hospital where the effect is huge?  No patient can be triaged or refused care.)

UCLA                          (We are only county-run family medicine clinic in the San Fernando Valley; and are responsible for three homeless clinics)

Harbor                         (For the uninsured working poor, for those with documentation issues (illegal aliens), the homeless, and teens at high risk)

UCSD Traditional         (Care is provided at community health center sites, especially St Vincent de Paul Village; and at student-run free clinics.  UCSD Hillcrest is filled with unfunded patients.  We take unassigned call every five days.)

Scripps Chula Vista      (By expanding services in CHCs, providing access to sliding fee scales, up to 100% discount with a $10 co-pay; inpatient coverage for much of San Ysidro CHC and satellite clinic patients)

UCSD St Vincent

White Memorial            (Program located in East Los Angeles, a Health Professional Shortage Area; population is reflected in FHC patient base, with 90% Medi-Cal/Healthy Families and 10% other)

Riverside                      (For the uninsured; for Medi-Cal; for the homeless)

Durant                          (We have become the community’s major primary care provider for Medicaid and the indigent)

OSU Tulsa                   (We are one of the largest access points for Medicaid in the State of Oklahoma)

USC Univ & SG          (The Pasadena (San Gabriel Hospital) family practice center and community health centers serve veterans, Medi-Cal PPOs, Healthy Families)

Modesto                      (We are the safety net provider for Stanislaus County, California.  We provide all medical care services for medically indigent adults and 65% of Medicaid (with the Golden Valley community health center providing the remainder)

Saints                           (We are the only program to take Medicaid in a geographical area with a large Medicaid population.  We see 60 patients a day, all impoverished and disenfranchised.)

Indiana U Methodist     (We serve an urban, racially diverse Medicare, Medicaid, uninsured, disadvantaged patient population)

Whittier                        (We serve patients with no primary care doctor, no insurance, Medicaid, the homeless, and tertiary care patients from          Harbor/UCLA, UCI, the VA, LAUSC and UCLA Med Center that live in our community.)

Pomona                        (We serve the homeless, mentally ill, patients with end stage chronic disease, people of color, and the unemployed)

Arrowhead                   (We are the providers of care for all indigent patients of San Bernardino County)

Loma Linda                  (75-85% of the patients that the residents care for are underserved, based on their demographics and place of residence)

Stockton                      (Our clientele is comprised of the indigent and Medi-Cal recipients.  There are not enough doctors who serve these groups)

Louisville                      (We accept new patients; we do not discriminate on the basis of insurance; our residents participate in indigient clinics; the GLO clinic is run with medical students and faculty and operates as a free clinic; the HOPE clinic operates out of a church; the teenage pregnancy clinic TAPS operates at two sites through the AHEC program and through Kentucky’s KICS program)

MCE Birmingham         (Except for the ER, we are the only provider in the hospital group that accepts Medicaid.  Although we are not a free clinic, about 60% of our patients are Medicaid)

Glendale                       (We are located within a federally-designated Medically Underserved Area; we have a proportionately large percentage of Medi-Cal, recent immigrants; because we provide comprehensive services, patients have access to a lot of care they might not otherwise receive; our faculty and residents in the aggregate are fluent in a range of languages represented in the community, which attract patients to this residency program)

OU Tulsa                     (The residency program serves an indigent population and a Hispanic population, a high proportion of which are undocumented aliens.  It is one of the largest providers of Medicaid in the region, especially for obstetrics)

OU Oklahoma City      (50% of 56,000 annual visits are Medicaid; 47% are uninsured; 16% are Medicare)

Yes:

Glasgow                       (Patients are screened and counseled when they present.  We look for any and all ways to help them take care of needs, but no social worker is on site; we have a Community Medical Care program for working, uninsured patients from Barren County, Kentucky)
