WHY DONATE TO MOBILEMED?
Montgomery County is characterized by increasing diversity – racial, ethnic, and economic. Broad health disparities persist. Plus, even with the expansion of insurance coverage under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), over 50,000 County residents are ineligible and remain uninsured. Clearly, there remains a strong need for MobileMed’s high-quality, culturally competent primary care services.
It is only with the generous support of our community – individuals, foundations, corporations and collaborative partners – that we are able to serve thousands of disadvantaged residents each year. In the 45 years that we have made healthcare accessible to the least fortunate, we have never turned anyone away for inability to pay.
Here are some examples of what your donation can support:
$50 – colon cancer screening for a patient
$100 – flu shots for 10 people
$250 – life-changing patient education for 25 individuals
$500 – one Women’s Clinic session
$1,000 – one week of mobile van operations
$2,500 – annual eye and foot exams for 50 diabetics
$5,000 – medical visits for 100 vulnerable patients
