Who We Are
Access Now provides access to specialty medical care for uninsured, low-income patients. Eligible patients are enrolled and receive their primary care through one of the area's safety-net clinics. When complex care is needed, Access Now's 850-plus medical volunteers ensure that no eligible 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.
