Even as members of Congress are hearing from their constituents about the issue of health care, more people are losing their coverage every day.
One of those people is Leroy Dickerson, a 63-year-old bricklayer who is seeking care at the Arlandria Health Center, a neighborhood clinic that offers free health care to people without health insurance. Over the last year, the center has seen a 40 percent increase in the number of people asking for services, and a steady rise in the number of people without health insurance.
The center has seen such an increase in demand that it asked a management consulting group to help them cope with the crush.
Lincoln Smith is the president of the Altarum Institute, which plans to work with the clinic for two years, helping them move into a larger facility and streamline operations.
