St. Joseph?s Medical Clinic (SJMC) provides access to healthcare through direct service and through referrals to providers willing to donate or discount their services. Clients are screened for eligibility, and must go through SJMC for all referrals. There are three main categories of service: -MEDICAL SERVICES: Clients who see a physician at one of our bi-weekly clinics also receive basic lab tests and health education. Conditions that require additional diagnostic tests or ongoing care are referred to a primary care doctor and/or a specialist in SJMC?s network. Care coordination also includes patient education and consultation, charting diagnostic results, setting up referrals, and handling administrative procedures. -MEDICATION ASSISTANCE: Sample medications, co-pays, and emergency assistance programs help clients obtain medications. SJMC dispensed over 897 medications in 2008, and paid for 837 prescriptions. -HEALTHCARE INSURANCE ELIGIBILITY DETERMINATION: Our clinic provides access to assistance to determine if you may be eligible for the marketplace insurance.
