Hello, SAID members. I am looking for information on how special care clinics are funded. If you work with a special care clinic, can you share with us how your clinic is funded? How much of your clinic is funded by different avenues, such as university support, state support, Medicaid revenues, grants or other means? If you could also state your patient population, that would be helpful. My clinic is for people with developmental disabilities (children and adults) and we are relying on Medicaid fees. Basically we are being supported by our other university clinics to make up the difference, but there are some people within the system calling on us to be self-supported. What are your clinics doing to stay afloat? Thank you in advance for your replies.
