What is Access Now?
Access Now bridges the gap to specialty medical care in the community to people who have nowhere else to turn. While the cost of insurance through the exchange is manageable for some, the co-pay and deductible costs continue to be unaffordable for most of our patients. Simply put, access to insurance does not always result in access to care.
Our generous and talented volunteers benefit the entire Greater Richmond region, with more than 880 physician volunteers and other specialty providers opening their doors to thousands of uninsured individuals in need of specialty care since the program began in 2008.
Operating with a small staff, the program seeks a maximum return on all donations. In 2016, for every dollar donated, Access Now delivered more than $8.79 in specialty-care services.
