Who is eligible?
You must meet all the following requirements:
- have a current medical need that goes beyond a regular checkup
- be a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent U.S. resident
- live in Sedgwick County
- have no medical insurance
- have no current state or Federal medical benefits (If you do qualify for state or Federal benefits, we will refer you to the right agency to start an application.)
- have a gross household income at or below 250% of Federal Poverty Level guidelines
Note: You may use this calculator to get a rough estimate of your level of income. Project Access considers several factors to determine a person’s income for enrollment purposes. Your estimate may differ from the amount determined by Project Access.
How can I be enrolled?
Project Access requires a referral from a doctor before a patient can be enrolled. In order to be considered for Project Access, you must already be a patient, and your doctor must agree to refer you to Project Access.
Referrals can come from:
- A private physician who has agreed to donate care through Project Access;
- One of the area’s primary care residency programs. The residency clinics include Via Christi Family Medicine, Wesley Family Medicine, and the KU residency clinics; or
- One of our low-cost, primary care clinics.
If you are a patient at any of these locations and meet the eligibility guidelines above, you may wish to talk with your doctor to see if he/she will consider referring you to Project Access.
