Project Access information for Physicians and Providers
Physicians, clinics, and hospitals already see patients who are uninsured and unable to pay. Without a system for providing support services for these patients, the provider often feels frustrated and the process may be inefficient and ineffective.
Project Access utilizes a coordinated system of care to assure that low-income, uninsured patients receive specialty care, laboratory tests, and radiology studies free of charge.
After patients are referred to the Project Access program, they are medically screened to make sure the referral is within the medical scope. They are financially screened to make sure they meet the 200% Federal Poverty Level guideline. Once enrolled in the program, a request for an appointment is made with a volunteering physician, clinic, or hospital in the community. A Project Access Care Coordinator calls the patient to inform them of the appointment.
