Moss Free Clinic’s 2023 Report Reveals Significant Care for the Community


Since our inception in 1993, the Lloyd F. Moss Free Clinic has remained steadfast in our mission to provide comprehensive healthcare services to adults living with limited financial means. As we embark on our 31st year of service, we are proud to share the results of our 2023 Impact Report, which underscores the vital role our clinic plays in the lives of our community’s most vulnerable residents.

At Moss Free Clinic, our commitment to serving those in need is unwavering. All our patients have incomes at or below 300% of the Federal Poverty Level. For those unfamiliar with this criterion, it means that individuals or families earning at or below 300% of the Federal Poverty Level qualify for our services, ensuring that those most in need can access essential healthcare without financial barriers.

Year after year, with the dedication of over 300 volunteers and 32 full/part-time staff, we continue to provide a lifeline to 1,300 of our community’s most vulnerable residents. Our unique model of care emphasizes collaboration among physicians, counselors, pharmacists, dentists, and nurses, ensuring that our patients receive comprehensive, patient-centered care that addresses not only their immediate health needs but also focuses on the prevention and early detection of diseases.

In 2023 alone, Moss Free Clinic served 1,249 patients, delivering 4,292 primary care visits, 1,836 dental visits, 980 mental health visits, 1,147 specialty care visits, and 1,020 case management visits. Our pharmacy dispensed a staggering 18,961 prescription medications, highlighting the critical role we play in providing access to essential medications for those who would otherwise go without.

The total value of care provided to our neighbors in need surpassed $7.24 million, a testament to the incredible impact of our Clinic on the health and well-being of our community. Despite our achievements, the need for care continues to grow, with over 26,000 uninsured residents and over 41,000 adults earning below 150% of the federal poverty level in State Senate District 16 alone.

As our region’s population grows at a rate of 3.4-4.5% annually, access to care remains one of the top three community health needs identified by Mary Washington Hospital. Moss Free Clinic stands at the forefront of addressing this need, having cared for over 16,000 patients since 1993, dispensed over 880,000 prescriptions, and provided over $325 million worth of healthcare services.

We recognize that none of this would be possible without the unwavering support of our donors, sponsors, partners, and volunteers. Your contributions have enabled us to be a beacon of hope for individuals and families in our community, ensuring that everyone, regardless of their financial circumstances, has access to quality healthcare.

As we look towards the future, Moss Free Clinic remains committed to creating a brighter and healthier future for all families in our region. Together, we can continue to make a difference and build a community where everyone has access to the care they need to thrive. Thank you for standing with us on this journey towards better health for all.
