This past weekend we worked with our colleagues at Pacific Public Affairs to produce a short doc shot at the Seattle/King County Free Health Clinic.
The four day volunteer-driven clinic provides a full range of free dental, vision and medical care to under-served and vulnerable populations. Last year the clinic served over 3,400 people and provided over $2.3 million in services.
This film will be an accompanying part of a series of documentaries targeted at legislators to increase reimbursement rates for that segment of the state insured by Apple Health/Medicaid. With the expansion of the Affordable Care Act in 2014 a greater number of the population acquired dental coverage, but dentists have been unable to financially accommodate this new population into their practices.
We heard and witnessed some truly touching, heartfelt stories this weekend. We look forward to sharing them with you…
