Healthcare success causes MN clinic to close

KARE 11 / Associated Press, August 25, 2014
Minneapolis medical clinic is closing, largely because more people are obtaining health insurance through the Affordable Care Act and seeking care elsewhere. Minnesota Public Radio News reports the Neighborhood Involvement Program provides medical care to thousands of uninsured and underinsured people. While 3,000 patients will be without a medical provider when it shuts down Friday, its dental and mental health clinics and senior and youth programs will continue. Because of the Affordable Care Act, some clients now have health insurance through MNSure, the state's online insurance marketplace. Others qualified for Medicaid when the state expanded eligibility to 35,000 low-income adults.
