NEED TO UNDERSTAND THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT?
Watch this terrific video, it will help explain the Affordable Care Act.
On October 1, 2013 the Affordable Care Act’s (ACA) new Health Insurance Marketplace will open for enrollment for those who are uninsured. You have until December 15 to sign up for your insurance to take effect on January 1, 2014, so there is plenty of time for you to explore your options and talk to your family about the right plan for you.
Although Chesapeake Care does not have the resources to assist you to sign up for private insurance through the Marketplace at this time, that could change in the future. If you would like more information, please click on the HealthCare.gov logo below.
At this time, it is uncertain whether or not Virginia will participate in Medicaid expansion.
We are committed to providing you the same level of care that you have always received here at Chesapeake Care. At least for now, there will be no change in your status here at the clinic. If that changes, we will certainly inform you of that. If you believe you might qualify for subsidized insurance under the Affordable Care Act, please click on the logo below for more information.
GREAT NEWS- We Received a Generous Grant from the Hampton Roads Community Foundation!
Chesapeake Care and the Hampton Roads Dental Center would like to announce our newest grant award of $131,000 from Hampton Roads Community Foundation to expand dental services in Hampton Roads. We are grateful for the trust they have placed in us for this three year grant and look forward to serving more Hampton Roads residents in need of safety net dental services.
Whole Foods has selected us for the Nickel for Profits program
The Whole Foods' Nickel for Profits program provides an incentive to customers to eliminate single-use plastic bags and develop stronger communities at the same time.
Whole Foods provides a 5 cent per bag incentive everytime you use your own bag. You have the option of keeping the change or donating that money towards a charitable program.
This month, Chesapeake Care will be the recipient of the program along with the People in Need Ministry. Thank you Whole Foods.
The need for access to basic healthcare is great in Chesapeake and Hampton Roads. Chesapeake Care Free Clinic is a non-profit organization committed to helping adults who do not fit within the guidelines of Medicaid, Medicare or traditional insurance. Last year alone we scheduled more than 19,000 appointments for patients.
Established in 1992 Chesapeake Care Clinic operates through a combination of grants, state and local funding, and business and individual donations.
Our network of medical, specialist, dental and administrative volunteers, along with our medical partners, help us stretch every donated dollar to over $9.32. Last year our operating budget of $1,102,997 provided $10.2 million in healthcare services for almost 2,102 patients.
Even though we are one of the largest medical clinics in the region who serve our patients by charging a minimal administrative fee, we need to keep growing because of increasing demand. We need your help. Please donate or volunteer.
