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 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?
SignUpNow is back in Western Tidewater! The Obici Healthcare Foundation is excited to sponsor SignUpNow on Wednesday, May 27 at the Western Tidewater Health Department 3rd floor meeting room. Register for this event here.
SignUpNow teaches the “ins and outs” of the eligibility requirements, application procedures, and post-enrollment information for Virginia’s Medicaid and FAMIS programs:
- New Medicaid health insurance for adults
- Programs for children and pregnant women (the FAMIS programs)
- Low Income Families with Children (LIFC) program
- Medicaid for Former Foster Care Youth (FFC)
- Plan First (family planning)
Even if you’ve attended a SignUpNow training in the past, 2020 training will contain new information…so, sign up again!
