Health Care and Homelessness Report

Full Report Excerpt

In 2015, the Interagency Council (formerly SCCH) and United Way of the Midlands researched the healthcare use of people experiencing homelessness and found that they consumed more than $1 billion in health care services between 2010 and 2012. The study was done by matching client data from the state Homeless Management Information System with Medicaid and hospital data.
