Pilot program in Florida offers free healthcare for uninsured
South Florida Sun-Sentinel, March 31, 2008
The Palm Beach County (FL) Medical Society is offering a pilot group of 25 patients access to concierge care. The medical society is partnering with MDVIP, a national network of physicians who pare their practices to about 600 patients to offer more personalized healthcare. Those in the pilot group are uninsured and are at 200 percent of the federal poverty level. The program will add 25 to 75 patients after a few months, according to medical society representatives.
