Annual report - final mar 2007

Our mission is to foster, facilitate, and medical care for residents of Delta & February 19, 2007 The year 2006 will be remembered for the many "firsts" experienced by the Medical Access Coalition: the opening of offices in Escanaba and Menominee, establishing referral and coordination procedures with many local healthcare providers and agencies, and enrolling our first clients. What began as a small group of people meeting at a local church with the goal of helping their neighbors without health insurance has developed into an organized program offering access to desperately needed prescription drugs, and information and referral for other healthcare services. Over 200 people in Delta and Menominee counties received these services during 2006. The comments recorded on Page 11 express their appreciation for the efforts undertaken on their behalf. The services provided by the Medical Access Coalition benefit the entire com-munity as well as the people who are directly served. By connecting people to existing government programs, i.e. Medicaid, Adult Medical Program, and Pub-lic Health, better coordination of local health care resources, and increased ac-cess to prescription drugs; more community residents are able to maintain their health and prevent more costly emergency care. Healthier people con-tribute to a healthier community. The Medical Access Coalition of Delta & Menominee Counties is a member of the Upper Peninsula Health Access Coalition, a partnership of five local access coalitions serving all 15 counties in the Upper Peninsula. As partners, we share common goals, eligibility criteria and enrollment procedures. We benefit from this regional partnership through grant funding secured for the UP, a shared patient data system, and innovative ideas and technical assistance pro-vided by the coalitions. These accomplishments would not have been possible without the support of the community partners listed on Page 13. Many people contributed their time and professional talents to serving on the Board of Directors and/or providing input in the development of a pharmacy benefit and establishing efficient enrollment procedures. The investment in access to affordable healthcare for low income, uninsured residents is a tribute to the spirit of caring for each other which exists in our two counties. We are proud to be a part of this community effort and look forward in 2007 to increasing the number of people served and listening carefully to their input as we plan for the future.
