Over 26,000 Johnston County residents have no health insurance. The goal of Project Access is to provide the opportunity for every Johnston County resident to receive access to health care.
What is Project Access?
Project Access exists to assist communities across the nation with establishing and sustaining coordinated systems of charity care. There are twelve active Project Access programs in North Carolina, each unique to its own community.
Project Access of Johnston County/Harnett County is a physician-led volunteer initiative that gives low-income, uninsured county residents access to comprehensive medical care. Through Project Access, physicians and community partners like Johnston Health or Harnett Health System donate medical services without receiving reimbursement or compensation.
Project Access is not health insurance. It is however, an innovative, voluntary program designed to help community residents stabilize their health in a time of need when health insurance is not available.
Who can participate?
Low-income, uninsured residents up to age 65, who are not eligible for Medicaid, Medicare, Worker’s Compensation, VA benefits, or any other type of health insurance plan or coverage.
How do I qualify?
