What Now? What about Affordable Care Act?
Many interested people, as well as the patients of the Salvus Center, have been asking as of late,
"What will you do as the Affordable Care Act (ACA, "Obamacare") begins to be implemented?"
"What will happen to Salvus?"
As you know, the mission of the Salvus Center is to help those who fall through the cracks of the traditional health care system to reclaim the Biblical mandate for health, wellness and wholeness for those in need. This mission still holds true regardless of whether TennCare is drastically cut as it was shortly after Salvus was begun, or if a national healthcare system, like the ACA, is implemented. We realize circumstances change, whether in health care systems and government policies, that are beyond our control. These changes may affect us but our mission remains the same: to help those who need help in ways that are pertinent and effective for the circumstances of the day. We have chosen to this point to help those who are the working uninsured and will continue to do so until we see the need to change that niche or scope of service as we are led through discernment of our future. The point is we are committed, with God's leadership, to respond to the need about us as long as we have the opportunity to serve and the resources to do it.
