What we aim to solve New!

Uninsured individuals place a heavy burden on our public resources. It costs Texas taxpayers, employers, and insured individuals about $9.2 billion per year to subsidize health care for the uninsured. Approximately $1,800 of each annual health insurance premium is due to the cost of emergency care for the uninsured. HFA services decrease healthcare costs and lessen the economic burden this issue brings to our community.

Those without insurance are unable to access primary and preventative health care and are forced either to wait until their condition worsens before seeking treatment or rely on local emergency rooms for basic services. Both outcomes result in a high cost for taxpayers and the community. We work closely with other resources to try and ensure clients find the most appropriate setting to seek their healthcare. It is our goal to remove barriers and ensure true health for all.

Charting Impact

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?

What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have and haven't they accomplished so far?

Our goal is to improve community health and reduce the cost of indigent health care by providing an alternative to the emergency room for low income, medically uninsured patients.

We help our patients manage their chronic diseases through primary and preventative care so they don't rely on emergency room services once they become extremely ill. By providing an alternative to expensive ER visits by the uninsured, Health For All saves Brazos Valley hospitals and taxpayers over $3 million dollars each year in direct indigent care costs and millions more in downstream savings.

Health For All asks that clients be a partner in their health care. We want patients engaged and committed to making healthier choices. We focus on being a medical home for a portion of patients that is difficult to reach and treat. We try to educate our patients and provide the tools to manage their chronic diseases through primary and preventative care so they do not have to rely on emergency room services once they have become extremely ill.

Health For All develops a treatment plan for each patient that is specific to his/her individual chronic disease issues and includes medical outcome goals. We then serve as the primary care facility for the patient in order to provide for continuity of care and treatment of as many non-emergency health care needs as possible.

We follow up with each patient on a regular basis, including doctor appointments every 90 days, to help ensure that the patient is complying with their treatment plan and making progress toward his/her goals.

We provide education, counseling, and information about diet, exercise, smoking cessation, self-breast exams and much more. We provide ongoing counseling and education to help empower the patient with information about their chronic disease(s), the treatment plan that has been prescribed, and the diet, exercise and lifestyle changes that need to be undertaken.

The outcome goals for the Health For All clinic are to: 1) Improve the health of our community's most medically
vulnerable population, and; 2) Reduce the cost of indigent health care. Our electronic medical record system enables
us to track and report medical data and outcomes. HFA analyzes the clinic's tangible benefits (the
number of patients receiving medical services, pharmaceutical care, and mental health counseling). This includes
demographic information while qualitative scales are used to determine patients' satisfaction. We determine if the clinic creates savings to the community by using state statistics and patient surveys to quantify the emergency room visits we curtailed. We track the cost effectiveness of our services through monthly financial reports. In addition, periodically we offer an anonymous survey asking patients to rate both the quality of care received by staff / volunteers and suggestions on how we can improve. We review our statistics and outcomes at least once per month and use the information to help ensure we're making progress toward our goals.

Health For All would love to see the need for our services cease to exist, but it's unlikely to happen in the near future. There will always be people who fall through the cracks of any system. We will continue providing high quality health care services to those in need until we no longer have any patients to serve. Unfortunately, the need in our community continues to grow. It is imperative that we raise awareness and funds to address this growing epidemic.

Seeing patients get help they desperately need, drives us to make sure no one is denied access to healthcare. Last year Health For All saved local taxpayers and hospitals $4,062,777. We provided 1,547 residents with 4,573 primary care education and counseling sessions, 3,560 diagnostic labs worth $71,059 and prescription medications valuing $130,370. For every dollar you donate Health For All is able to provide $1.83 worth of services.

We worked with partnering organizations to help clients receive specialty care including colonoscopies, pap smears and mammograms, optometry and ophthalmology, as well as podiatry and surgical intervention.

Health For All volunteers provided 1,547 patients with preventative health services including personal histories, blood pressure monitoring, body mass index (BMI) and glucose levels. Our annual care of each patient includes exams that screen for Breast Cancer, Colorectal Cancer, Skin Cancer, Cervical Cancer, Testicular and Prostate Cancer.

In the past Health For All has primarily served the "Working Poor." Recently we have seen a trend with more unemployed clients. In a tough economic environment employees have faced layoffs, reduction in force, cut hours or closed businesses. Most middle-income families are insured through their employers. This coverage is put into jeopardy as unemployment levels have climbed within our patient population. Our patients are between the ages of 18 and 64 because this is the age range that is not automatically eligible for existing government programs. 80% of our patients earn less than $1,500/month. Approximately 60% of our patients are female and most are single parents. We serve patients from over 20 counties, but 95% live in the Brazos Valley.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
