Mission Statement

To provide access to healthcare services for the uninsured residents of Howard County.

Who We Are

Project Access, a service program of the Howard County Medical Society and United Way agency, is a volunteer physician, dental and healthcare provider that delivers comprehensive medical care to qualified, uninsured residents of Howard County, Indiana at little or no cost to the patient.

Diagnostic labs, imaging and other ancillary services are provided to patients with a minimal $25 co-pay.  Our goal is for our patients to achieve optimal health outcomes.  We assist  them in doing this by coordinating free physician appointments and corresponding healthcare services.  We educate and coach each patient based upon their individual need and circumstances.  Without Project Access, many of our patients would have gone untreated, unmedicated or under medicated compounding their medical issues.
