Patient Care Coordination

Program Description

Access Now links the primary care patients receive in safety net clinics to more advanced specialty care not available at the free clinic. The specialty care secured through Access Now is provided in private offices, surgical centers and in hospitals. It is without charge. As a specialty care referral program, Access Now’s 900+ physician volunteers ensure that no eligible uninsured patient goes without specialty care for want of a willing provider. Access Now Care Coordinators match patient needs to specialty volunteers, work intimately with patients as they navigate the healthcare system, provide translation services when needed, secure appointments, and ensure the successful transfer of medical records. Throughout this process, Access Now Care Coordinators keep the referring clinic, the patient, the volunteer physician and the hospital informed.
