KAISER PERMANENTE ADVANCES $200,000 TO COMMUNITY CLINICS

 KAISER PERMANENTE ADVANCES $200,000 TO COMMUNITY CLINICS
 SAN DIEGO, Sept. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Kaiser Permanente recently provided the network of community clinics in San Diego County with $200,000 to address continuing cash flow problems resulting from serious delays in reimbursements from the state.
 "Our situation is crucial," says Stephen Shubert, director of the San Diego Council of Community Clinics. "The state's IOUs are no longer honored by local banks, and it will take weeks before we see checks from the state. Without cash we can't continue operating our clinics."
 The $200,000 is an advance on grant money that Kaiser Permanente plans to award to the community clinics during the course of the next few months, according to Diane Strum, Kaiser Permanente's director of community relations and government affairs.
 "By advancing this cash to the clinics we felt we could help them out of a difficult cash flow situation -- and help assure that needy people continue receiving quality health care," says Strum.
 According to Shubert, "This kind of support is really welcomed right now. The Kaiser money gives us a real boost and will get us through the next several weeks. But for the long haul, we need people to call the Board of Supervisors and ask them to make health care a priority and support the community clinics."
 The grant money is one of several components of a partnership between Kaiser Permanente and the Community Clinic that was forged last year. The partnership also calls for Kaiser Permanente to donate to the clinics surplus equipment, health education materials, sponsor joint educational sessions, and more.
