The Medical-Legal Partnership improves the health and well-being of low-income uninsured and underinsured patients receiving care at designated primary care clinics throughout Palm Beach County: 

  • C. L. Brumback Primary Care Clinics (Delray Beach, Lantana, West Palm Beach, and Belle Glade) 
  • Foundcare 
  • Genesis, MyClinic 
  • Community Health Center of West Palm Beach 
  • Caridad Center 

By providing free legal consultation, education, and representation centered around the patient's medical home, the MLP increases access to, and utilization of, healthcare services by addressing barriers such as loss of insurance coverage, denial of benefits, financial hardship due to medical bills, and immigration issues affecting access to healthcare.
