Volunteers In Medicine
Volunteers In Medicine is a medical “home-base” for low-income, underserved adults and their households in Lane County who can’t afford health care coverage. Even with the Affordable Care Act, many individuals lack the financial means to pay for high deductibles, co-pays, and other out of pocket expenses. Services we provide include primary health care, routine physicals, women’s health care, behavioral health care, diabetes management and counseling, physical therapy, specialty care and referrals to specialists, respiratory therapy, and smoking cessation. We also have a pharmacy on-site where patients have access to some medications at no charge.
A major problem that can result when patients don’t have access to preventive care is that a small, treatable issue can turn into something more serious over time. This leads to costly emergency room visits and procedures that can be burdensome financially to both the patients and our local economy. At Volunteers In Medicine, our mission is to provide our patients with the preventive care and services they need to be healthy and happy.
