Michigan clinics awarded grants to help uninsured, underinsured
Nearly four dozen clinics will share $860,500 through Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan’s Strengthening the Safety Net program.
Blue Cross says the funding will help the clinics provide free or low-cost medical, dental and mental health care services to uninsured and underinsured Michigan residents.
The funding also pays for substance use disorder treatment.
Grants of up to $25,000 each were awarded to 17 clinics.
Another 30 clinics were awarded up to $15,000 each.
Recipients expect to provide care to more than 60,000 people this year. Health care organizations offering primary care services also received more than $190,000 in matched funding through the program.
