Free oral care clinic to be held in L.A.

Care Harbor, a Los Angeles-based nonprofit organization that runs large-scale free urban health clinics, will host its annual Los Angeles clinic from October 31 to November 3 at the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena.

Care Harbor will provide free medical, dental, and vision care, as well as follow-up care, to an estimated 1,000 patients each day. The clinic was made possible by a grant from L.A. Care Health Plan, which is also providing resources at the event. Also participating are Dignity Health, Tzu Chi Medical Foundation, and more than 40 organizations and 3,000 volunteers.

This year's event coincides with the roll out of Covered California, the state's insurance marketplace program under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Care Harbor/LA 2013 will include a large-scale insurance signup in which L.A. Care Health Plan and County agencies will all take part to connect individuals and families with the services that they need and are available to them.

In 2012, Care Harbor/LA provided free services to 3,758 patients; more than 1,000 of whom were connected to medical homes for continuing care, including free surgeries.
