80 million people in the United States are uninsured and underinsured. In the last two years, 40% of the U.S. population either didn’t buy medicine they needed or reduced the required dosage because of the high cost!
Health care coverage is one of the top concerns for people in our community. United Way of Wapello County is committed to helping increase access to affordable heath care and getting everyone the medicine they need. Many people who live and work in our community struggle to pay their bills and have to choose between getting the medicine they need and paying for food, rent or utilities.
