Los Barrios Unidos Community Clinic (LBUCC) is known for having high quality staff that is bilingual in English and Spanish. In addition, staff members understand patient needs and respond with compassion. Los Barrios Unidos Community Clinic is a unique organization for a unique community.
At LBUCC, no one is turned away for the inability to pay. Patients accessing LBUCC’s services may benefit from paying on a sliding fee scale. The sliding fee scale is based on federal poverty level guidelines that are updated every year. The Clinic also accepts Medicaid, CHIP, Medicare and private insurance.
LBUCC is one of three federally funded community health centers in the Dallas County area designed to provide comprehensive primary care services that prevent illness and promote health. Today, federally funded community health centers serve over 9,800 urban and rural communities across America, providing a health care home for over 25 million Americans. Community health centers have been in existence over fifty years, reducing hospitalization by 200% and reducing the pressure on hospital emergency rooms in countless ways.
Of note, federal funds account for less than one-third of LBUCC’s operating budget. Patient revenue, even with deeply discounted fees, makes up nearly half of the operating budget. Private donations are also essential to shore-up the budget, as well as support new and exciting programs and services.
The organization is pleased and proud to provide services out of three impressive facilities, which have been built “from the ground up”, expressly to meet the needs of our communities.
