San Bernardino Sun

Community clinics across the Inland Empire are scrambling to get ready for the nearly 300,000 newly insured patients who under the Affordable Care Act could potentially flood their offices in early 2014.

Enrollment for the historic program will begin Oct. 1.

“We believe community clinics and health centers will play a seminal role in the success of the Affordable Care Act nationwide,” said Carmela Castellano-Garcia, president and chief executive officer for the California Primary Care Association, which represents 900 not-for-profit community clinics and health centers statewide.
