March 2017 Recipient: Story County Dental Clinic
The Story County Dental Clinic (SCDC) provides high-quality dental care to those insured by Medicaid, hawk-i, the Dental Wellness Program,VA benefits and low-income, uninsured individuals. Working exclusively with Medicaid rates for uninsured patients keeps patient cost low, but these rates cover only a fraction of the actual costs. Therefore, using these low rates creates a gap in clinic funding that Mid-Iowa Community Action, Inc. (MICA) must continually raise funds to fill. The SCDC serves approxiatey 2000 individuals a year, in over 4,000 appointments. Between 25% and 30% served are children. Over 70% of those receiving services are Story County residents. Open Monday through Thursday, 8AM -6PM.
Give Back Thursday: March 9
1% of Store Sales are donated to the monthly Co-op Nickel recipient on the second Thursday of the month.
