 Finding Health Care for the Uninsured

Choosing a primary care doctor or clinic is an important decision.  Together, you and your doctor will go about the serious business of managing your health.  Additionally, having a primary care doctor can help you avoid going to the emergency room and the high costs of emergency room visits.

If you are uninsured and living in Davidson County, Project Access Nashville is here to help you.

Project Access Nashville connects the uninsured to primary care safety net clinics that serve patients based on their ability to pay. The network of providers offer an array of primary care services, which include disease management, treatment of acute episodic conditions, and access to pharmacy services. There are also specialty care services offered to those who qualify.

Through Project Access Nashville, you can find a clinic that meets your need based on location, hours of operation, language, and charges.  We can also help you find dental care, and provide you with information on local mental health providers that serve the uninsured.

To Connect with a Clinic Through Project Access Nashville you:

  • Must be uninsured
  • Must live in Davidson County
