A NONPROFIT AT A GLANCE
A Bit of Background
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.
Unfortunately, in the United States, health care can only be accessed by those who can financially afford it. According to the US Census, over 20% (66M) of the population in the whole country do not have adequate health insurance coverage. About 13% (43M) of the nation’s population do not have any health insurance. PWMD provides the required health support for the uninsured residents
Orange County, Florida’s 5th largest county has an estimated population of 1,422,746 as of July 2021.
Where 14.8% do not have insurance = 210,566
HOW DO WE MAKE AN IMPACT IN THE COMMUNITY?
By providing financial aid to the uninsured, we allow them to receive the preventive and medical care they immediately need, reducing:
Rates of mortality and premature death
Rates of cancer death related to a late-stage cancer diagnosis
Expensive medical bills due to undiagnosed or untreated chronic conditions generating ER visits, increasing unpaid hospital bills.
