PUP'S LONG HISTORY OF SUPPORT TO THE CITY HEALTH CENTERS
PUP has stood behind the Health Centers to push for expanded access, shorter lines and guidelines for care.
The City Health Centers provide access to a full range of preventive, chronic and acute care services. Uninsured people are more likely to receive too little medical care and to receive it too late, to be sicker and to die sooner. They delay getting health services until there is a crisis. They receive fewer preventive services and less regular care for chronic disease.
- Uninsured adults more often go without recommended cancer screening tests, delaying diagnosis until the cancer is advanced and more likely to be fatal;
- Uninsured adults with serious chronic problems, such as hypertension, lack regular access to medications to help control these conditions;
- One quarter of adults with diabetes who are uninsured for a year or more miss timely eye, foot and blood pressure exams that help prevent blindness, amputation and cardiovascular disease.
