Increase Access to Health Care

As measured by the percentage of residents reporting that they had no access to health care due to cost.

Why Is This Important?
Metric Definition

Percentage is reported as a 3-year rolling average.  

Data source: Michigan Behavioral Risk Factor Survey (MiBRFS) asked residents “Was there a time in the past 12 months when you needed to see a doctor but could not because of cost?”


Although Oakland County currently has the lowest rate of uninsured people in years, there are still significant segments of the population that don’t have reliable access to care. 

Current Status

Oakland County Health Division recognized a need for increased services for residents and coordination among community agencies and created Health 360. This partnership with Honor Community Health has integrated primary care and family planning under one roof at Oakland County Health Division offices in Pontiac and Southfield. Oakland Livingston Human Services Agency (OLHSA) will be incorporated into the partnership in 2022 to provide resource navigation and help with social services.
