HelpCare Clinic has been established to meet the proven need for a safety net clinic in Kearney, Nebraska to serve the uninsured in Buffalo and Kearney counties. HelpCare is a nonprofit 501c3 free clinic where individuals are cared for by paid and unpaid staff concerned about the health and wellbeing of our community and those that live and work here.
Why is HelpCare Needed?
2010 Census data reports an estimated 5,763 persons of all ages in Buffalo County (12.5%) and 715 persons in Kearney county (11%) are uninsured. While the Affordable Care Act allowed for some to become insured, there is still a large population that is uninsured.
Care is provided free of cost to persons who have no insurance and do not qualify for Medicaid or Medicare. The availability of services at any given time depends on the corresponding availability of medical volunteers, resources, equipment and funding.
Services Offered: outpatient primary medical care, preventive medical services, and behavioral health services
Services NOT Offered: Reproductive health services, emergency care, prenatal care and prescription narcotics
Consistent with HelpCare Clinic's effort to address a specific segment of our population, the uninsured, patients receiving care at the clinic will need to satisfy the criteria below in order to be eligible for services.

•Patients must earn an annual income at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines ($50,200 for a family of four)
