What Does the Affordable Care Act Mean for Mercy Health Clinic?

Mercy Health Clinic is here to serve our neighbors who will not be covered by the ACA.

  • Mercy Health Clinic screens all patients to identify those who are eligible for government assistance such as Medicaid and Medicare. For those who qualify, we assist them with the application process.
  • For patients who qualify for a subsidy to purchase private insurance through the Maryland Health Exchange, we refer them to a “Navigator” who assists them with enrollment. 
  • These efforts allow us to focus on our mission of serving low-income, uninsured adults of Montgomery County who have nowhere else to turn for health care. At the same time, we’re providing information and enrollment help to those who do qualify for other assistance.

The reality of the current health care landscape makes Mercy Health Clinic just as relevant and necessary as it has been since our doors opened in 2000. With your support we will continue providing quality health care from the heart for those in need.
