Our purpose is to link low-income uninsured Daviess County residents with a health care provider. This will offer better access to healthcare and provide a medical home for this vulnerable population.
Founded in the summer of 2004, the Daviess County-Community Access Project (DC-CAP) is a community-wide initiative created to eliminate healthcare barriers for uninsured Daviess County residents. The program assists patients in navigating the complex healthcare system and receiving consistent, timely care. In order to provide this consistent care, enrolled patients are assigned a primary care physician that will accept them into their private practices.
DC-CAP case managers provide appointment reminders for patients, arrange transportation, assist in acquiring needed medications and provide general support to patients as they seek to improve their health.
By managing a physician network, providing prescription assistance, arranging agreements for ancillary and hospital services, DC-CAP will provide enrollees with access to the entire continuum-of-care through donated services from local healthcare professionals and facilities.
