To the Editor:

To the LaGrange County Community:

 The KennyBurkett Clinic Board of Directors and volunteers would like to thank you for your continued support. We are very fortunate to live in a community where people reach out to assist those in need.

Your donations have allowed us to continue to pay for the first 30 days of most prescriptions written by our providers. Additionally, we have been able to assist several patients with payment for potentially life-saving diagnostic tests.

As many of you know, the Affordable Care Act goes into effect in 2014. Please be aware that this does not mean there will no longer be a need for our services. It has been estimated that while 500,000 previously uninsured Hoosiers will be able to get coverage, over 300,000 Hoosiers will continue to be uninsured due to a gap between the new mandate and existing Medicaid coverage.

We plan to offer services to the uninsured of LaGrange County as long as a need exists. Please remember us as you plan your 2014 charitable giving. We are a 501c(3) corporation and donations are tax deductible.
