This represents almost 17% of San Diego’s population. Our clinics offer services in both rural and urban areas and include several Indian health centers. Almost ninety percent of clinic patients have incomes at or below 200% of the federal poverty level, with over two-thirds (68%) living below 100% FPL.

Approximately eighty percent of uninsured persons are employed; many of these uninsured are the working poor who rely on San Diego’s community health centers for primary and preventive care services.
