12% of Orange County residents are medically uninsured
That is almost 379,825 people with no medical coverage. Many of them are low-income working individuals at 200% or below the federal poverty level who cannot afford to pay for essential medical care. Medical complications can put them out of work or turn them homeless. AccessOC works with local hospitals, doctors, nurses, translators and other community volunteers to deliver free high quality speciality medical services to low-income uninsured individuals who need care.
