Will benefit uninsured in Palm Beach and Broward counties...

May 26, 2017

West Palm Beach, FL - by CRL Media - Helix Urgent Care announced today it’s community open houses with complimentary medical evaluations for a limited time during summer and fall 2017. This twelve open house weekends have been set by Helix Urgent Care in Palm Beach Gardens and Deerfield Beach exclusively.

These free evaluations are ideal for people who have not seen the doctor in the last months or years and are in need of a check up. This is also an opportunity for those who are concerned about the cost of office visits due to the lack of insurance.

According to the United Census Bureau, 28 million Americans are uninsured and nearly 5.3 percent of the uninsured are children. Census data shows that uninsured rates are high in South Florida: 26 percent of males ages 18 to 24 are uninsured, compared with 17 percent overall in the United States. Women don’t fare much better: 23 percent of women ages 18 to 24 are uninsured, compared with 13 percent nationwide. According to the U.S Department of Health and Human Services as of December of 2016, Palm Beach County has eight areas/populations (MUAs/MUPs) designated as medically undeserved.

We are seeing more and more uninsured patients every day despite the mandatory healthcare insurance. Some are diabetic or have hypertension and are not on top of their numbers creating bigger health problems. We would like to help our community by offering complimentary medical visits and hopefully we will be able not only to save a life or two, but to contribute to the overall wellness of the residents of Palm Beach County and Broward” said Brenda Stone, Helix’s general manager.
