ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the gap that exists within the health care sector in Lebanon County, Pennsylvania. It is stated that free health care clinics have been set up for residents who are not insured. According to the author, such an effort will be less effective for residents who receive Medicare funds because health providers receive less reimbursement from such patients. Another reason for the gap is that Lebanon County does not have a federally qualified health center (FQHC).
