There are 11,000 low-income, uninsured Arlington adults who are not eligible for insurance through the Affordable Care Act. AFC is the medical home for 1,600 of these underserved members of the community. The need for AFC’s services continues to greatly exceed our capacity. We accept new patients via monthly lotteries (shown here) or by referral from Virginia Hospital Center and local shelters.
All AFC patients live in Arlington County and have incomes at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level (for a family of 4, this is $48,500). Most are parents with children who live at home. Our patients live in every zip code in Arlington, and each is an integral part of their own family and our community. AFC’s impact cascades beyond our patients and into their homes, workplaces, neighborhoods and children’s schools.
