Provides Free Health Care to Children at School Based Clinics
(HEALS) is a 501(c)3 non profit organization in Huntsville, Alabama dedicated to providing accessible quality, school-based primary health care for children through collaborative efforts with the Huntsville City school system and the medical community.
By providing free on-site medical and dental care, mental health counseling and social services at the participating schools, HEALS clinics make an immediate difference in the lives of many children and their families.
It is our mission to deliver accessible, quality, school-based, primary health care for children through collaborative efforts with the school system and the medical, dental and optometry communities. By providing accessible school-based health care for eligible economically disadvantaged children, we are a real solution, right now to the health care crisis by providing them with a medical, dental and optometry home. HEALS makes a long-term national impact. In these times of health care reform, and much uncertainty on the national stage, HEALS is a real solution, right now. It is undisputed that early intervention and health education lead to lower lifetime medical costs. HEALS makes a positive impact on our community. Healthy children learn better at school and have lower delinquency rates. Children who have a medical home where they are nurtured and supported are more likely to succeed in school, and in life. Children who receive positive attention and who are given ways to take positive control of their lives are more likely to exhibit better behavior in school and in the community. HEALS makes an immediate impact. Children who have a medical home do not go to the Emergency room for routine care. Therefore, children get high quality continuity of medical care, and fewer tax dollars are required to subsidize ER visits.
Since this is a sliding fee scale clinic, we have provided the Federal Poverty Guidelines below. Visit the Heals Inc website listed above to see what the level is needed for free care.
|Persons In Family Household||Poverty Guideline Salary per year|
For Households with more than 8 persons, add $4,480 for each additional person.
*Alaska and Hawaii have different rates for HUD federal poverty guidelines.
These numbers above represent 100% of the Federal Poverty Rate. In order to get reduced or free services from some clinics, they use a sliding fee scale based on your income.When they use a sliding fee scale, the 100% rate can be different than 100%. In those cases, using for example a 200% federal poverty level, you will only need double the 100% number listed above to 200%.
