Description

The AmeriCorps member will be a vital part of the clinical processes at Sulzbacher by enrolling homeless residents in patient assistance programs (PAP). The member will be responsible for obtaining approximately 1/3 of all medication dispensed to the over 3,300 patients seen at Sulzbacher each year. Management of the patient assistance program by an AmeriCorps member bridges gaps in patient therapy that would otherwise be unfilled, and allows for increased treatment options for the indigent patient population served by the Sulzbacher Center. The member will also provide health education to patients on nutrition, exercise, mental health, lifestyle changes, diabetes, tobacco cessation, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The member will accomplish this in a one on one and group setting based on community needs. The AmeriCorps member will play a critical role to ensure that only eligible patients receive medical services and access to free medications at the Sulzbacher Primary Care clinic. Previous experience confirms that some Sulzbacher clients require assistance to understand and submit the information required to ensure their medical eligibility. Based on 2017 new patient estimates, the member will be responsible for validating eligibility for an estimated 2,000 patients that will be seen in the Beaches Primary Care Clinic. The member will also screen clients for opioid use and refer to primary care physicians for brief education about referrals for services. The member may also act as a patient resource, assisting patients to connect with other appropriate programs through our case management team.
