Who We Are
Established in 2001, the Health Access Project (HAP) is a community partnership, nonprofit organization that works to develop a more effective system for providing healthcare to low-income, uninsured residents of Salt Lake County. The Health Access Project targets individuals who have incomes at or below 150% of the Federal Poverty Level.
Operating under umbrella of Community Health Clinic, Health Access Project is committed to serves low income people and resident of Salt Lake City by proving charitable health and dental care. This is achieved through our network of providers who has agreed to donate their time for to our patients.
Approximately 110,000 uninsured individuals live in Salt Lake County, the majority of which do not have access to affordable health care. When they get sick, the uninsured often delay seeking care until their condition has worsened. Many uninsured patients use the Emergency Room as their main source of care, increasing health care costs for the entire community.
In collaboration with all the major health care providers in Salt Lake County, HAP is creating a system through which the uninsured can obtain needed health care before it becomes an emergency. HAP accomplishes this by leveraging donated physician and hospital care, as well as by providing culturally-appropriate case management and enabling interpreter services.
