The Travis County Medical Society's, Project Access Program is a coordinated system of volunteer physician care, hospital care, diagnostic services and medications assistance for the low-income, uninsured of Travis County.


For patients:

The mission of Project Access is to provide ready access to appropriate health care services for uninsured people in Travis County whose incomes are at or below 200% of the Federal poverty level and to improve the overall health of our community. (200% of Federal Poverty Level Guidelines are based on gross income.)


To apply for assistance, please complete the application below and return it to
4300 North Lamar Blvd, Austin, TX 78756. Questions should be directed to 206-1164.

For physicians:

Project Access is a highly visible example of physician leadership in action with 1,000 area physicians providing volunteer services. Since commencing operations in early 2003, Project Access has enrolled over 3,927 patients and provided over 24,000 patient encounters, resulting in over $24.4 million in donated care.

The Project Access staff assigns patients to a medical home, then coordinates and tracks referrals to specialists. The staff manages the referral process so the physicians will not be assigned more patients than their commitment pledge, thus effectively removing the issue of disproportional referrals as a barrier to physicians' good faith participation.

We can build on the program's success and provide services to even more of the uninsured individuals in our community with your help. We urge you to thoughtfully consider participating in Project Access along side of so many of your colleagues.
