ADP®, a leading provider of employee health care benefits administration and human capital management (HCM) services, today announced the findings of a new ADP Research Institutes (SM) study indicating that if 2012 health benefit participation rate patterns persist into next year, then a portion of newly eligible employees may opt to remain uninsured because they perceive the cost of insurance is too significant a percentage of their annual income.

According to a recent national survey, 17.1 percent of Americans lack health insurance, and more than nine million of the nation’s uninsured rely on federally qualified health centers (FQHC), non-profit community clinics and free clinics each year for primary care. While these clinics serve the critical health care needs of the uninsured, patients oftentimes cannot afford the medications prescribed by the clinic’s physicians, or navigate a fragmented system that only offers partial solutions. This is a particularly growing problem for America’s working poor.
Today, Medco Foundation and Dispensary of Hope (DOH), a not-for-profit pharmacy-focused social venture for the uninsured, introduced a new, national initiative to substantially improve the supply, delivery and management of critical prescription drugs to thousands of uninsured Americans who are managing a chronic illness.
