Benson Health is a 501(c)3 nonprofit and a federally-certified Rural Health Center. For more than 40 years, we have been a safety net provider in this rural area, offering primary care services, laboratory, radiology, and clinical pharmacy services.
We have 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
- Twenty-three percent (23%) of our patients have Medicare
- Fifteen percent (15%) of our patients are uninsured
Benson Health 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, we offer the Medical Access Plan (MAP), making health care accessible to uninsured people with incomes at or below 200% of the FPL. We serve 370 people through the MAP program.
Since 2006, we have collaborated with the NC Farm Workers Project to provide primary health care services, including immunizations, to nearly 300 farm workers each year. On June 11, 2020, Benson Health announced that it is receiving a $35,455.04 grant through the North Carolina Healthcare Foundation’s COVID-19 Fill the Gap Response Fund. The funding will be used to allow Benson Health in partnership with the North Carolina Farmworkers Project to provide mobile medical care and testing for COVID-19 to farmworkers.
We are an active member of Community Care of Wake and Johnston Counties, which works to improve the health and quality of life of all North Carolinians by building and supporting better community-based health care delivery systems. We are also a member of the Johnston County HealthNet.
Pharmacy students, physician assistant students, and pharmacy residents from Campbell University, as well as medical students from UNC-Chapel Hill are trained in our facility.
