Acacia Medical Mission, a volunteer medical ministry serving uninsured and underinsured low-income adults residing in Comal and Blanco Counties opened in August. The clinic is open every Wednesday from 6 to 8 p.m. at 353 Rodeo Drive (in the new Bulverde-Spring Branch EMS station) to receive those seeking medical assistance.
The clinic is dedicated to serving the uninsured and underinsured who cannot afford basic healthcare. These persons will be 18 to 64 who are not eligible for Medicaid, Medicare, or other government benefits. Patients may call for eligibility screening at 830-228-4219 to leave a message. Someone will return the call within 48 hours to schedule an appointment. Also, walk-in patients are welcomed on a first-come first-served basis on Wednesday from 6 to 8 p.m.
The clinic does not treat children covered under the CHIP program, or Medicaid. It does not treat those 65 and over who are eligible for Medicare. The clinic is not designed to handle emergency or urgent care treatment, hospital treatment, prenatal or obstetrical services, pediatric services, family planning, substance abuse treatment, treatment for work-related injuries or car accidents.
The mission of the clinic is “to provide high quality, affordable preventative healthcare for the medically underinsured and uninsured in Comal and Blanco Counties through a non-profit, faith-based health clinic.”
While many churches, civic groups, businesses and individuals support this medical mission, it still can use you to continue this mission.
We welcome your tax-deductible donation, which can be mailed to Acacia Medical Mission, 353 Rodeo Dr., Spring Branch, TX 78070. Volunteers may call 830-228-4219 to find out how you can help.
