Mobile Clinic/Healthcare for the Homeless
Providing a full range of preventive and primary health care services.
Since 2005, KRFDC has been providing a wide array of health care and related services to Estill and Powell counties through the Healthcare for the Homeless Program, which takes medical care out of the traditional hospital-based setting and brings it to a population in need of health services.
Outreach and primary care services are provided within a 40-foot mobile health clinic that sits adjacent to the Estill County Outreach Office.
Services include exams, immunizations, medications, and referrals.
The program utilizes a sliding fee scale and assists patients with payment plans. The clinic also accepts Medicare and Medicaid and most private insurances. The program will see patients without regard to ability to pay. Dental services may be provided to patients in need depending upon funding availability.
The location in Estill County is a licensed Oupatient Substance Abuse Program and employs a Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor (CADC) to provide outpatient substance abuse counseling. Transportation may be provided to patients who need assistance.
