I have written before about how important regular medical treatment is in winning a social security disability claim. Loss of a job due to a disability, however, often leads to loss of medical coverage, Parkland Hospital is available to low income Dallas county residents who do not have health insurance available. My experience, however, is that my disabled clients often have medical insurance “available” (for example, medical coverage is possible through a spouse’s job) but there is simply not enough money without a job to pay for medical insurance.

Project Access is collaboration of Dallas county doctors and healthcare providers to bring free medical care to those not poor enough to qualify for Parkland Hospital treatment. For more information visit www.projectaccess.info.
