Abstract: Problems faced by uninsured residents of a north Texas county in obtaining medical care were investigated. The Behavior Model for Vulnerable Populations (Gelberg, Anderson, & Leake, 2000) uses predisposing, enabling, and need variables, to predict use of health care services. A random sample of 50 residents of Grayson County who had problems getting health care in the past year was interviewed by phone in August 2004. Twenty percent reported not being able to get needed medical or surgical care in the past year. Those most likely to report problems were respondents aged 18 to 44, unmarried, in poor health, and with competing needs of food, clothing, and housing. Results support the need for an indigent health care clinic in Grayson County.
