Organization: Dirne Health Centers, Inc. dba Heritage Health – Coeur d’Alene, Idaho.
Project: Mary Ellen Scholarship Program.
Problem: Currently, 75% of the applicants to the Mary Ellen Scholarships are seeking financial assistance for mental health. With Idaho being well above the national average for suicide rates, it is vital to assist as many patients as possible with their mental health needs. The Mary Ellen Fund will help improve access to care by reducing the financial barrier that patients can face.
Solution: This Scholarship Program will reduce or cover the entire cost of patient care to selected individuals for a period of time. This grant will provide care to an additional 83 patients within 12 months of approval. Scholarship receivers will obtain access to either a 90-day treatment plan of mental health services, dental treatment plans, a year of medical services, including in-house labs or a combination of all three – depending on need and budget.
Here at CaptureRx, we are honored to support Capture Cares and its continued effort to enable the missions of covered entities. This is just one example of how grants can be used to impact communities and their patients.
