Patient Ginny Evans explains the impact of Project Access Northwest: “It’s changed my life… I lived on carbs like mashed potatoes and rice, since my mouth hurt so badly I couldn’t chew.”

Here's why sponsors, donors and volunteers support Project Access Northwest:

We offer innovative solutions to complex problems.

For more than a decade, we have teamed up with community partners and sponsors to remove the barriers and increase access for all to medical and dental services. In an ever-changing health care environment, our core competence in care coordination remains critically important — and an important element of all our programs. From Primary Link and Premium Assistance to our new Health Home program, we constantly evolve to meet the needs of patients.

We save health care dollars.

By ensuring that a specialist sees a patient with the right paperwork, imaging and lab reports, we create an efficient visit, maximizing the use of a specialist’s time. We often hear from providers that they wish all patients were managed as well as Project Access Northwest patients.

By helping patients find care in a provider’s office instead of a hospital emergency room, we help improve efficiency, lower costs and improve patients’ continuity of care.

By enabling patients to continue their insurance coverage through premium assistance, we help them continue to access the care they need while helping hospitals manage their charity care

A recent study of our gastroenterology patients revealed that $325 in care coordination returns $3,480 in treatment—a 1070% return on investment!

Our donors change lives.

Whether it’s a new hip or knee, a gastroenterology procedure, or treatment for a painful and infected tooth, providing desperately needed specialty care can change someone’s life. Patients who get they care they need are often able to return to work and take an active part in family life. Our donors help patients “get their lives back again.”

Project Access Northwest is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. Your financial support enables us to keep this important community service available for those in need.
