What is Access DuPage?
Access DuPage is a collaborative effort by thousands of individuals and hundreds of organizations in DuPage County to provide access to medical services to the county’s low-income, medically uninsured residents. Since the program began in 2001, more than 60,000 of our DuPage County neighbors have received high quality compassionate health care through Access DuPage. This year, Access DuPage will serve approximately 6,000 members.
Access DuPage represents an exceptional partnership of hospitals, physicians, local government, human services agencies, and community groups working together locally to build an efficient and effective health safety net. Every dollar of direct service provided through Access DuPage is matched by more than ten dollars in donated health care generously provided by every hospital in DuPage County as well as thousands of volunteer physicians and health clinics.
Access DuPage sits within a growing network of health services coordinated by the DuPage Health Coalition. The DuPage Health Coalition also operates the Silver Access Program, which provides financial help to lower income families purchasing Health Insurance on the Affordable Care Act Marketplace, and Women’s Health Navigation Services.
Coming in early 2017: The DuPage Health Coalition will open the DuPage Dispensary of Hope, a new free pharmacy program in Wheaton, offered in partnership with DuPage County.
