To the Editor: In the Health Agencies Update,1 Dr Hampton cites a report by the National Association of Community Health Centers2 and states that “[p]atients without health insurance are flooding US emergency departments.” We believe that this is an inaccurate description of that report, which focuses on the achievements and threats to community health centers.
