Description

The role of the NHC AmeriCorps member is to assist indigent patients with applying for medication assistance through various pharmaceutical companies. The member will do this by screening patients for Patient Assistance Program (PAP) eligibility and helping them to enroll in PAP programs that provide free prescription medications. This portion of the member’s role is crucial for the function of the Sulzbacher Medical Center, because it provides medications that would otherwise be unattainable for Sulzbacher and its vulnerable patient population. By assisting patients in obtaining these medications, the member directly impacts the management of chronic illnesses in the community. It will be the responsibility of the member to learn to manage and maintain a medication room, keeping all medications obtained through the patient assistance program available for patients. The member will also expand access to resources for patients by assisting patients with the SNAP benefit enrollment process. This service bridges gaps in the holistic care approach to disease management that the Sulzbacher Medical Center employs by providing patients with access to quality nutrition. The member will be responsible for coordinating with the Area Health Education Center (AHEC) to organize and promote tobacco cessation classes for Sulzbacher Center residents and patients. The member will also provide health education themselves to groups of patients referred to them by the clinic physicians on topics such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or diabetes.
