New Clinic Advances Access for Uninsured in Buncombe County

Three Streams Family Health Center of Asheville will officially open its new “Access 4 All” clinic with a ribbon cutting on February 2, 2011.  The clinic will allow uninsured residents to be seen during additional, non-traditional hours for primary and minor urgent care needs and will be open late Tuesday evenings, and all day Friday and Saturday. While not free, sliding scale fees will help to promote access to care among the uninsured. The project is funded by a grant from Mission Health System’s Community Benefit Program. Project Access plans to co-locate on a part-time basis an eligibility screener at the clinic to streamline referrals into Project Access for patients who qualify.
