FIRST CHOICE PRIMARY CARE, INC.
The purpose of this Increase Demands For Services grant from HRSA was to allow us to retain a Nurse Practitioner and Medical Assistant. The primary goal of this grant was for us to see additional uninsured patients. This is especially important because our percentage of uninsured patients now represents almost two-thirds of our patient population. Our second goal was to increase our collections to enable us to continue to serve a high volumbe of uninsured patients. We were able to accomplish both of these goals by retaining the Nurse Practitioner and Medical Assistant positions as full time and by adding a Billing and Collections Clerk to increase our cash collections.
