Baltimore HealthCare Access is now HealthCare Access Maryland!
Established in 1997 to aid with the Medicaid transition to managed care, HealthCare Access Maryland (HCAM) is overseen by a committed board of directors from both the public and private sector. HCAM has nearly 200 employees and works closely with a range of community and government agencies and health care insurers.
As a 501(C) not-for-profit organization, HCAM is supported by public and private sector grants, as well as corporate and individual donations. This unique funding allows us to provide a variety of specialized services for the residents of Maryland in our four areas of expertise: eligibility/enrollment, navigation, care coordination and education/advocacy. To learn more about our four areas of excellence, please view our new brochure!
In 2011, we connected more than 100,000 clients to health care and vital community resources through a variety of programs serving the uninsured, under-insured and vulnerable populations of the state. While we specialize in health care access, we continue to serve all the needs of our clients, beyond just an insurance card. We serve all of Maryland's residents including children, pregnant women, parents, childless adults, and youth in foster care, as well as those with addiction issues, individuals recently released from jail, and the homeless. In Baltimore City, we have serve one out of every six residents, and have the expertise and capacity to serve the rest of the state's uninsured and under-insured populations.
With Health Care reform on the horizon, we hope to play an even larger role once it is fully implemented in 2014. In the current difficult economic climate, HealthCare Access Maryland provides care beyond just insurance coverage for people who have lost their job or who need temporary assistance due to short-term problems. Our new name and logo mark the beginning of our expansion of these services to other parts of the state.
