BAMC is a 501(c)3 nonprofit and a federally-certified Rural Health Center. For over 33 years, BAMC has been a safety net provider in this rural area, offering primary care services, laboratory, radiology, and clinical pharmacy services. BAMC has a special commitment to serve the uninsured and underinsured members of the community. Fifty-four percent (54%) of our patients have incomes at below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL). Seventeen percent (17%) of our patients have Medicaid or NC Health Choice, 23% of our patients have Medicare, and 15% of our patients are uninsured.
BAMC works with other agencies and organizations to provide health care to individuals who are not covered by private insurance, Medicare, or Medicaid. In collaboration with the NC Office of Rural Health & Community Care, BAMC offers the Medical Access Plan (MAP), making health care accessible to uninsured people with incomes at or below 200% FPL. We serve 370 people through the MAP program. For the seventh year (2012), in collaboration with the NC Farm Workers Project, primary health care services including immunizations are provided for nearly 300 farm workers. BAMC is an active member of Community Care of Wake and Johnston Counties and Johnston County HealthNet. Pharmacy students from UNC and Campbell University are trained here, and plans are underway with Campbell University for BAMC to become a training site for their medical students and physician assistant students.
