For Primary Care
Centennial Medical Center of Plano works with the Collin County Adult Clinic System (CCAC) to provide primary care in their clinics to adults who live in poverty, or are uninsured or already have Medicaid. The CCAC provides free services for adults who earn less than 100% of the Federal Poverty Level - today, about $11,490 a year. There is a small fee for adults who earn more than this amount. There are several locations now, and there will be more in 2015.
Services include health screening for women, and treatments for diabetes, heart disease, obesity, and HIV/AIDS. CCAC works with hospitals to prevent unnecessary use of emergency services or other hospital care, keeping adults out of the hospital and able to work and care for their families. These Primary Care clinics help to prevent illnesses or medical conditions from getting worse.
