As a CHAP Provider you play a pivotal role in the success of CHAP and the Access Plan. Please take a moment to learn more about our mission to provide a system of health access for the uninsured adult population in Cuyahoga County.
With the launch of the Access Plan in 2012, we are enrolling patients at current provider locations that need specialty care. This allows us to work with each provider to ensure they have the capacity to meet the demand in our community. Our next step will be to reach out to individuals who aren’t connected to a primary care provider and help them access the current healthcare system. Our outreach will be conducted through a number of different channels that are currently available in this community.
Even with Medicaid expansion and the potential for a health insurance exchange in Ohio, there will still be individuals that need CHAP’s assistance. We will continue to work with those individuals to connect them to a primary care provider and help them access the needed specialty care. We also recognize that coverage does not equal access, and so it will be important to help this newly covered population understand the best ways to use the health care system.
If you are interested in serving as a primary or specialty care provider, contact us at 1-888-929-CHAP(2427) or [email protected]
