More than half of our patients are in fact employed - but often their job, or jobs, are part-time, and if their employer does offer health insurance, they can’t afford the premiums and co-pays. The remaining patients have lacked consistent access to healthcare causing standard screening and/or preventable treatments to go unaddressed – in many instances resulting in more serious medical issues.


If the high cost makes health insurance and health care out of your reach, the Gloucester Mathews Care Clinic may be able to help.  The Clinic has recently expanded its eligibility criteria to ensure access to care for those who don’t qualify for Medicaid, but can’t afford health insurance.
