Access to Care

The Access to Care Program will match uninsured, income-eligible clients who have been denied by Medicaid with a healthcare provider who has agreed to become a primary medical home for them.  Medical providers agree to see clients at free or discounted rates.






  • Access to Care is not a form of insurance coverage. The program will directly link enrollees with health care services volunteered by local health care providers. Access to Care cannot help with all health care services in all circumstances.
  • Access to Care may not be able to help with all types of care and service
  • Access to Care is not health insurance
  • Access to Care cannot pay past medical expenses.

If you have questions, please call 330-926-5734.


Many are without health insurance for a number of reasons and struggle to find quality healthcare. You may qualify for the Access to Care program if: 

  • You have been denied for Medicaid
  • You live in Summit County, Ohio
  • You do not have or are not eligible for health insurance
  • You earn less than $23,760 per year (family of one)

If you answered YES to all of these, you may qualify for the Access to Care Program.  Please call 330-926-5734
