Florida Clinics Help Those Without Health Insurance

Lines have recently been out the door however, and the clinics are feeling the added burden of many extra patients when it comes to their budget. Doctors are now also treating more severe conditions as people have allowed their health to decline in favor of paying bills and making their mortgage. Since these clinics depend on grants, donations, limited fees, and volunteers, will they survive the added strain of the recession and continue being able to help Florida’s uninsured?
