Impact Summary from the Nonprofit Statement of Need There are over 80,000 uninsured residents living in Summit County. According to a recent study by the CDC, uninsured adults were more likely to visit the emergency room because they had no other place to go (61.6%), compared with adults having private insurance (38.9%) or those with public health plan coverage (48.5%). The Summit County Community Health Assessment of 2011 found large disparities both between who has insurance and who doesnít, and in the health of those two groups. Approximately one-third of those near poverty (between 101% and 200% of the Federal Poverty Line (FPL) are uninsured, as are about one-quarter of those between 200% and 300% of the FPL. For those earning more than 300% of the FPL, uninsured rates decline significantly, to approximately 5%. The survey also found that ďthose who were uninsured were more likely to have been in poor or fair health, to have had no usual source of health care, and to have had unmet health care and prescription needs, than those with health insurance.Ē The US Census Bureauís 2011 community survey stated that 16.6% of all Summit County residents are living in poverty. This is an increase of 2.4% since 2007. The national poverty threshold for a family of 4 in 2012 was a household income of $23,050. The average household income in 2012 in the neighborhood surrounding OPEN M (zip code 44311) was $15,508. Studies show that 31% of people living in poverty suffer from depression, which is twice the rate of those who are not living in poverty. The vast majority of OPEN M clinic patients are economically disadvantaged and would have to make a choice between going to the doctor, paying the rent, or buying groceries. Many would have undiagnosed mental health issues. Without OPEN M, many would find it necessary to forgo needed medical treatment in order to have a place to live and food to eat.
