We work every day to ensure that North Country families have access to quality health care, regardless of their income. To continue that work we need your support.
Why must we raise funds?
Some of the medical and dental care we provide is covered by insurance, some costs are covered directly by patient payments, and some costs are covered by special grants from private and public sources. But, each year about $500,000 worth of the care we provide is not covered by any funding source. We give that care to individuals who are uninsured or underinsured. Underinsured individuals include, for example, those who have insurance plans that don’t pay for their care because of high deductibles or limited service coverage. It is our mission to provide these vulnerable children and families with the care they need., regardless of their ability to pay.
