Gloucester Mathews Care Clinic celebrates 20 years of service

When Constance Davis showed up at the Gloucester Mathews Care Clinic in 2016, she had been without medication to treat her diabetes for about six months.

She had no insurance. She had stopped paying for private insurance through Marketplace after her premium went from around $400 a month to $1,000 a month.

And she didn’t qualify for Medicaid.

“It just really was discouraging enough for me to make the decision to live without medication, live without physician treatment,” she said.

Patients must be residents of Gloucester or Mathews County, be at least 18 years old and not eligible for Medicare, have no insurance of any kind, and be at or below 250 percent of the federal poverty level, which for an individual is an annual income of $30,350.
