Recent Successes and Current Challenges
Sea Mar has played a leading role in Washington state in providing education, training and outreach to uninsured community members, and has helped tens of thousands of people enroll for insurance under the Affordable Care Act. As the need continues, so too do Sea Mar's efforts in this area. As more community members are served by Medicaid without an increase in the number of local providers seeing Medicaid patients, Sea Mar has managed a large spike in patients seeking clinical services, while at the same time continuing to serve those who remain uninsured due to cost or ineligibility. Contributions to Sea Mar are directly applied to serving patients who would otherwise not receive the health care they need.
