According to the South Carolina Institute of Medicine and Public Health, 16.8% of South Carolinian adults are uninsured. In Aiken County, that number is even higher, clocking in at 19% of adults under the age of 65.
It’s no secret that having health insurance increases access to critically important medical care, especially when it comes to preventive services that identify and prevent chronic diseases like diabetes, heart disease and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD).
But not everyone is fortunate enough to have access to affordable healthcare, even with the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Though the ACA has made healthcare available to millions of Americans since its passage in 2010, there are income restrictions that prevent many patients from taking advantage of these affordable plans. Many of our patients who come to seek health care from us do not meet the income requirements to access health care through the ACA.
