OUR SAFETY NET PARTNERS
In Michigan, a network of clinics (often run by a small army of volunteer doctors, dentists and professional staff) provide free or low-cost care as a safety net. These clinics play a vital role, helping the most vulnerable in our communities. They rely on fundraising to pay their bills, keep the lights on, doors open and shelves stocked with medical supplies.
Learn more about how Blue Cross partnerships throughout Michigan work to improve health care and help patients who would otherwise fall through the cracks in the health care system.
Strengthening Safety Net grants are at work in clinics across the state providing much needed health care and improving access for our most vulnerable residents.
Together, Strengthening the Safety Net grantees serve as a lifeline for thousands of uninsured and underinsured patients, their families, and communities.
