Local free medical clinic will continue to operate

OlympiaSeptember 30, 2013 

Many are asking these days about the future of The Olympia Free Clinic in light of the Affordable Care Act. Since the passage of this legislation, we have sought to understand what it means for our clinic and those we serve.

We believe, and our view has been confirmed by outside experts, that many in our community will remain uninsured for one reason or another. There will still be significant gaps in access to affordable health care. The need for our clinic is not going away anytime soon. Your continued support is much appreciated.

The Olympian is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
