the Safety Net
Access to Healthcare
Everyone deserves access to quality healthcare. Here’s how we help.
Health safety net providers deliver essential care to the uninsured, underinsured and other vulnerable populations who otherwise could not access it. Core safety net providers include emergency rooms, free and charitable clinics, local health departments, Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs), community health centers and other providers that deliver care to a significant number of uninsured and underinsured patients. A safety net that coordinates effectively with community-based wraparound services is more effective at ensuring long-term positive health outcomes for its patient population.

Did you know that over 331,600 adults in Virginia are now enrolled in the new Medicaid health insurance? Still, thousands are eligible, but not yet enrolled.
Did you know that only one training program, SignUpNow, is endorsed by the Virginia Department of Medical Assistance Services (DMAS) to instruct those wishing to help the newly-eligible sign up or renew their new Medicaid health insurance?
If you signed up for the Wednesday, May 27, Western Tidewater Health Department SignUpNow training, please note the event has been postponed. You will receive an email from the Virginia Department of Medical Assistance Services (DMAS) with the updated information if you registered. The Foundation will also post the new date and times on this page as soon as they are released.
