In order to meet the needs of the growing population of uninsured residents in the region, the Florida State definition of indigence needed to be amended. Along with the assistance of then-Florida State Representative Ken Sorensen, GHC Founder and Medical Director, Dr. Sandy Yankow, was able to facilitate the designation from 150% to 200% of the National Poverty Level.
Consequently, an individual with an annual income of less than $21,660 may qualify for free healthcare at GHC. See the chart below for larger households.
|Size of Family/Household||Total Monthly Income||Total Yearly Income|
