Mobile medical clinic helps the uninsured
The Press-Enterprise

Fernando Barajas had nowhere to go for medical care. He couldn’t afford health insurance through his construction job. He doesn’t qualify for a government plan. So, the 52-year-old Riverside resident went to the emergency room to get treatment for his diabetes. He found out his blood sugar level was sky high. The visit cost him $3,000 — a bill he never paid. Barajas would still be in the same predicament if he hadn’t found a mobile medical clinic near his home.
