Review for Access Dupage, Carol Stream, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I currently and for the past 21 years have held the title of General Assistance Director for Winfield Township, one of the 9 townships within DuPage County, Illinois. The state-mandated cash assistance program which I administer includes a medical component for the recipients. Access DuPage has been invaluable to our clients and the township by providing low-cost prescriptions and physician visits. Generic prescriptions are $5 for the members of Access DuPage. Doctor visits can range from $5 to $15 including specialists. For recipients of our General Assistance program, even these small co-pays are out of reach. The township must make these payments for its G.A. Recipients and many of the precriptions can be quite costly for a local government's budget to bear. Being able to make the small co-pay instead of paying retail is a benefit to the township. Having low-income, chronically needy individuals in the Access DuPage program will ultimately forestall catastrophic medical issues by assigning people to primary medical care physicians or clinics. I wholly endorse this charily program as does Winfield Township by budgeting $7000 per year to Access DuPage
