My taxes should pay for health care for all Americans, but they don't. I can donate $1,000 right now; what organization will use that money most effectively to provide care for uninsured/underinsured people in the United States?

made me check my finances and realize I can afford to help. Ideally, I'd like to find something with a broader scope than Remote Area Medical
, but RAM seems to do a tremendous amount of good per dollar even with the limited services they can provide. The Children's Health Fund
covers more territory and scores high on Charity Navigator, but its size, mission creep beyond providing care, and sources of corporate support make me skeptical. Most of the other charities I've found are local free clinics in places that aren't near me. What other organizations should I consider?
