Since our founding in 2011, we have been determined to make an impact in the community. The core of our efforts is to provide financial assistance to health uninsured population, making easy access to quality care including preventive services  and educating them the way for a wellness life.  We hope to contribute for lower the percentage of  uninsured individuals educating them to better choose an affordable healthcare insurance  plan.

NEGOTIATE WITH CLINICS & HOSPITALS

Reinforcing our Commitment

With access to the right person at the healthcare provider's Financial Management, we get the opportunity to negotiate a medical procedure's high cost and payment plan as well. 
Even though not always the provider is able to give us a financial benefit, during all those years we have successfully negotiated some medical rates.

HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONAL PARTNERSHIP 

Free Dentist Care Day

Health uninsured and low income outreach population in our community is something that we take very seriously. Health Professionals with the same vision,  partner with us and many people receive the benefit of donated health service.

COMMUNITY REALITY

THE FOLLOWING REAL NUMBERS ARE ONE OF THE  REASONS WE DO WHAT WE DO FOR THE COMMUNITY

  • 1 in 4 individuals are uninsured in the City of Orlando. (US Census Bureau – American Community Survey)

  • Total individuals in the City of Orlando (Orange County): estimated 1,382.152 (2019)

  • This survey also revealed that 13.4% or 185,208 people are without health insurance.

In many countries health care is a right, while in the US health care is for those that can afford it. Nationally, over 20% of individuals do not have adequate health insurance. About 13% of the nation’s population do not have any health coverage. PWMDF provides the required health support for a significant noninsured Orlando residents requiring life-saving treatments.

HOW WE IMPACT THE COMMUNITY

Providing financial aid to this specific population which allows them to receive the preventive and medical care they immediately need. This contribute to reduce:

 * Higher rates of mortality and premature death 

 * Higher rates of cancer death related to a late-stage cancer diagnosis 

 * Expensive medical bills due to undiagnosed or untreated chronic conditions generating ER visits, raising npaid hospital bills.

TESTIMONIALS

HELAINE S.

My name is Helaine. I am 32. After a motorcycle accident, on my early twenties, I became handicap. In 2019 I was promoting a campaign to raise money to buy a new wheelchair. My cousin who lives in Orlando, FL, heard about the PWMD Foundation and told them my story. The foundation contacted me.  I went throughout an application process and I got qualified and approved for a financial aid.  With their help I was able to buy this customized wheelchair. 
I recommend, with no doubt, the services and support of this organization.  2019
