About Us

The vision of Health Care Access Now is to build a primary care integrated community-centered system for the uninsured and other vulnerable populations in our region.

Health Care Access Now (HCAN) was started by community leaders in 2009 to improve the overall health status of Greater Cincinnati’s most vulnerable residents – those who are likely to have poor health outcomes because they do not have consistent medical care; access to behavioral health care and specialty care; lack support in successfully managing chronic diseases.

Health Care Access Now (HCAN) is a solution to the health disparities and extreme health care costs experienced by an estimated 400,000 residents, 20 percent of our region’s population (adults living in SW Ohio and Northern KY).

HCAN’s mission is to find consumers through community outreach and working with targeted physicians, enroll consumers, connect them to care and resolve barriers to care.
