One in four residents is uninsured in the Inland Empire, which includes Riverside and San Bernardino counties, the fourth and fifth most populous counties in the state, according to a study released last month by the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research. San Bernardino and Riverside counties are not doing well. Lavarreda said data show that the impact of the unemployment rate in the Inland Empire was much greater than other parts of the state. Ordinarily, federally qualified health centers and their associated clinics would help provide services to the increasing number of uninsured, but they are relatively few and far between in the region, which spans a vast territory approximately the size of Maine.
For about 14, county residents, the future of medical care under the Affordable Care Act already is here. The state of California, the federal government and the California Association of Public Hospitals and Health Systems formed an agreement to allow a portion of the healthcare reform law to roll forward early. To manage these people, Arrowhead Regional has set up contracts with private and public health care providers. The program has more than doubled the number of providers it started with on Jan. In forming its initial contracts for the healthcare of ArrowCare patients, Arrowhead Regional officials carefully analyzed areas with the greatest need, Boatman said.
