SALT LAKE CITY (AP) --The Utah Department of Health has awarded 50 health care agencies $1.6 million in grants so they can give primary health care to those who lack access to it.
The medically underserved include Utahns who are not eligible for the Children's Health Insurance Program, Medicaid, Medicare, private insurance or the Primary Care Network.
The grants will target the working poor, children, the elderly, Native Americans, migrant and seasonal farm workers, individuals with chronic diseases, the homeless and single heads of household.
