What is Project Access?
In 1999, Project Access began coordinating access to donated medical care for uninsured, low-income residents of Sedgwick County, Kansas. Thanks to our founding funders — United Way of the Plains, the City of Wichita (CSBG) and Sedgwick County — Project Access is still able to serve the community today. We are pleased that the following providers participate in Project Access:
- 640 physicians
- 8 hospital systems
- 14 dentists
- 85 pharmacies
- Other allied health care services, such as physical therapy and hospice care
Project Access and its community partners serve patients in many locations. Eligible uninsured patients are enrolled for limited periods of time to address immediate medical needs. Once enrolled, patients have access to a variety of specialists, as well as prescription medication, durable medical equipment and diabetic supplies.
How can I be enrolled?
You need to be referred to Project Access by a participating physician or community health clinic throughout Sedgwick County. When we receive your referral, we will schedule an appointment to review your income and other information to see if you qualify.
Additional key partners are community clinics and the Department for Children and Families (DCF). Patients who receive primary care at certain community clinics may be referred to Project Access and enrolled by an onsite DCF eligibility specialist.
