Unite to Ensure Health Care for All

Support ICHS

Each year, ICHS spends nearly $2 million in charity care for patients who have little or no insurance.

Even with the changes brought on by the Affordable Care Act (ACA), many ICHS patients — immigrants who have been in the country for less than five years — do not qualify for low cost coverage under the ACA. Your financial support to the ICHS Foundation helps us provide affordable and accessible health care to everyone who walks through our doors, especially to vulnerable members of our community without insurance.
