Virginia Cares Uninsured Program (VCUP) Announces Early Successes in Helping Uninsured Virginians Access Quality Healthcare
Date:1/15/2008

informing citizens of the VCUP program

Under the construct of the VCUP, PAF case managers work closely with patients to evaluate their individual needs, striving to facilitate access to timely and appropriate care. In some cases this includes helping patients apply to state or federal programs, while in others it requires detailed investigation into local, regional and/or disease specific resources and individual healthcare providers who accept and care for indigent patients regardless of their ability to pay. The VCUP program representative also negotiates for free medications, transportation to/from medical services, and any additional underlying social service needs to facilitate access to healthcare.

To be eligible for the VCUP, a patient must be a legal resident of the United States currently residing in Virginia with a diagnosis of chronic, life-threatening or debilitating illness and must be uninsured. Additional PAF programs include Co-Pay Relief, National African American Outreach Program, Colorectal CareLine, LIVESTRONG(TM) Partnership and the National Hispanic Latino Outreach Program. For more information on the Virginia Cares Uninsured Program, visit http://www.pafcares.org or call 1-800-532-5274.

Patient Advocate Foundation is a national non-profit organization that seeks to safeguard patients through effective mediation assuring access to care, maintenance of employment and preservation of their financial stability.
