AccessHealth is not insurance. It is a statewide AccessHealth SC network supported by The Duke Endowment to assist communities in creating and sustaining coordinated, data-driven networks of care that provide medical homes and ensure timely, affordable, high quality healthcare services for low income uninsured people in South Carolina.
More than 750,000 South Carolinians do not have health insurance. And, roughly 30,000 of our Upstate neighbors fall below 200% of the federal poverty level (FPL), and are left without the benefits of a primary care “medical home” — a place where they know their doctors and nurses, and where their doctors and nurses know them.
Instead, our uninsured neighbors are often left to choose between their own health, shelter or food, and are subsequently forced to utilize the emergency department (ER) when they could have been treated in a primary care setting.
That’s why AccessHealth helps connect low-income, uninsured friends and family members to a medical home, and to better quality and continuity of healthcare.
