Lightpath Health believes that everyone deserves access to basic medical care.

Notes from the nonprofit

As part of its primary care program, Lightpath Health partners closely with Catalyst Health Network to provide health and extended Care Team services, and with Stellus Rx to provide pharmacy services. These North Texas based health partners are instrumental to Lightpath Health's work to expand access to primary care for individuals without health insurance.

Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Texas leads the nation in ratio and number of uninsured residents at 17.7% of the population, compared to 9% nationally, lacking health insurance coverage. Millions more are functionally uninsured due to high deductible health plans that leave them using the emergency room as a last resort when they are very sick, seeking care only when it is critical, and the costs and outcomes will likely be worse. In Dallas County, 21% of the population lacks health insurance, and a disproportionately high number of uninsured and underinsured residents live in healthcare deserts, or neighborhoods with dangerously low access to healthcare. Health disparities have been identified as highest within southern Dallas, where communities experience severe poverty and economic instability including the highest levels of unemployment, disproportionate disease rates, and lack of key resources like access to healthcare services. (U.S. Census Bureau, 2019; 2022 Dallas County Health Needs Assessment).

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Lightpath Health

Lightpath Health (LPH) provides comprehensive, team-based primary care at no cost to eligible individuals ages 16 and older without health insurance. Utilizing a value-based care model, LPH provides personalized primary care to patients, referred to as neighbors. In addition to provider visits, neighbors receive collaborative support from an extended care team that integrates medication management, chronic care support, case management, community connections, and an after-hours nurse triage call center. To expand access to services, they are provided both in person and virtually.

LPH has established community partnerships with trusted organizations, embedding services within these trusted locations. The first site was launched in fall of 2022 with St. Luke Community United Methodist Church located in the Dallas neighborhood of Owenwood.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
