MACON, Georgia (41 NBC/WMGT) -Thursday's Supreme Court ruling on mandatory health care for all those who can afford it, is still fresh in the minds of many middle Georgia doctors. Especially those who work at the Macon Volunteer Clinic, where one of the criteria for patients, is they have no medical insurance.
Dr. Lynn Denny volunteers her time for the clinic. She says it's still too early to fully know how this ruling could affect how they help patients, and how many they help in Bibb County.
Her understanding, is that anything to help people get more and easier access to insurance, the better. But she isn't convinced this is the answer to solve the health care problems.
"More than likely, this Supreme Court ruling, and this law, will not fix everything. More than likely, there will be some people that fall through the cracks," Denny said.
Denny also said, no matter what this ruling does for our country, their mission at the Macon Volunteer Clinic, will not change.
"We will stay here, provide care to the people that we are set to care for. And we're going to do that, in the community, as long as we're needed."
Criteria for patients to utilize the Macon Volunteer Clinic include having no insurance, being at or below 200% of the federal poverty level, have a job, and live in Bibb County.
