As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another .
AccessHealth Pee Dee – covering Chesterfield,
Clarendon, Darlington, Dillon, Florence, Marlboro and
Marion Counties – is one of 11 community-based health
networks in South Carolina. We collaborate and create
access to health, social and behavioral health services
for both underinsured and uninsured individuals.
In South Carolina, 13.4 percent of state residents were
uninsured in 2015 (CDC). The state has one of the
largest populations of uninsured and underinsured in
the country. It its seven-county health network, Access
Health Pee Dee currently serves about 1,500 clients.
AccessHealth Pee Dee provides navigation, care coordination, and case management to both
underinsured and uninsured adults in need of access to appropriate healthcare so they can receive the right care, in the right place, at the right time. Our network partners consist of Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC’s), Free Clinics, Social Service Providers, Hospitals, Physicians and Physician Practices across the Pee Dee Area of South Carolina.
AccessHealth Pee Dee consists of a Director, a Coordinator, two Navigators/Case Managers, a Welvista (medication assistance program) worker, and two Virginia College students. We are assisting with services to nearly 1,500 clients, working with hospitals, physician partners, and community medical home partners. Intensive care management services will be provided to clients with 5 or more visits to the Emergency Department, the most expensive, least coordinated method of healthcare.
AccessHealth Pee Dee commits to continuing its endeavors to ensure access to a coordinated network hub of health and social services for the Pee Dee’s un- and underinsured population to improve their health, improve their ability to utilize appropriate services and reduce cost to the health system by reducing clients’ primary care treatable ED and inpatient utilization.
