Classic Care Coordination
Project Access NOW continues to work with all of the hospital systems and most of the major specialty and multi-specialty clinics in the Portland Metro area to provide donated care to those who remain uninsured and who meet specific income guidelines.
The majority of our Classic clients are immigrants, undocumented and documented, who are unable to receive health insurance coverage under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) or Medicaid expansion.
While the number of individuals this program is actively serving has returned to pre-ACA levels, the amount spent on interpretive services and per-member, per-month medication costs has increased.*
Last year, the Classic program worked closely with our Outreach, Enrollment, and Assistance and Premium Assistance programs to move more than 200 clients from donated care to insurance, creating capacity for others who need donated care and those who do not qualify for health insurance.
