Access to healthcare is a significant challenge for many Americans. Certainly, financial constraints and limited healthcare provider availability are major hindrances for low income residents seeking healthcare. However, lack of transportation to healthcare appointments, which usually are not close to home, is a huge challenge for many people with limited incomes and/or disabilities.
