Background Discussion

Health Management Associates (HMA) was contracted by Manatee County to develop a health care model to provide services to the uninsured citizens of Manatee County.  Dr. Maurice Lemon will be presenting HMA's final recommendations for a countywide health  care program.

HMA has met with all County Commissioners, many local health care providers, the Healthcare Advisory Board and many other local individuals and groups with information pertinent to the health care situation in Manatee County.  All facets of health care have been considered during these discussions, including: medical health, behavioral health, substance abuse treatment, dental, education, and special programs.

Using the compiled community information, as well as historical information on our community's health care initiatives, HMA has developed a proposal on how to best serve the uninsured population in Manatee County.
