Appalachian Mountain Project Access
AMPA seeks Meaningful Access to Healthcare Services. We offer 3 Programs: Specialty Care Coordination, Health Insurance Marketplace Navigation, and Insurance Premium Assistance. SCC utilizes a network of charitable medical providers who agree to donate their care to patients deemed eligible by our comprehensive financial screening process. This program is offered to Washington County, TN residents primarily; residents from Carter, Johnson, and Unicoi Counties may also qualify. Patients must not have access to affordable health insurance, must have an important medical need, and have household income which does not exceed 200% of the Federal Poverty Level. HIM involves outreach, education, and one-on-one assistance for application and enrollment in private health insurance plans available on the Health Insurance Marketplace through www.healthcare.gov. HIM also provides information regarding the Affordable Care Act and general health insurance basics. This program is offered to the residents of 12 East TN Counties: Carter, Claiborne, Cocke, Grainger, Greene, Hamblen, Hancock, Hawkins, Johnson, Sullivan, Unicoi, Washington Counties, TN. IPA is a pilot program which assists those with complicated illnesses or multiple specialty care needs, such as cancer, which necessitate higher medical utilization, afford HIM plans by covering the monthly premiums for those plans. This is only available to Washington County, TN residents.
