Programs

Project Access is a volunteer physician program that provides specialty care services, prescription medicine assistance and health-related education to low income uninsured Wake County residents.  We have recently added dental specialties so our offerings.  Physicians and dentists that would like to learn about opportunities for donating care can contact Pam Carpenter at pcarpenter@wakedocs.org

Community Case Management:  Case Managers assist in assessing, implementing, coordinating, monitoring and evaluating the options and services needed to meet the needs of uninsured patients with ongoing medical conditions and/or needs.  Our team consists of an RN who focuses on those with chronic health conditions and a Social Worker who focuses on high ED users including those with chronic pain, substance abuse, and mental health issues.

Patient Navigation:  Our Patient Navigator screens and refers uninsured adults to partner clinics in order to link them to a medical home that best meets their needs.  Education about benefits of having a medical home, referrals for other resources and services, and information about the Affordable Care Act and accessing insurance through the Marketplace are also provided.

Health Insurance Marketplace Navigation: Marketplace Navigators provide education and outreach about insurance coverage options and financial assistance available through the Marketplace.  They provide in-person assistance to answer questions and assist people through the process of enrollment and plan selection.
