The Vineyard Health Care Access Program is a community-based service of Dukes County that connects residents of Martha’s Vineyard with health benefits. We help people to apply for, enroll in, and maintain coverage in health insurance programs including MassHealth (Medicaid), Medicare, Connector Care, and Qualified Health Plans. We also provide assistance with other government benefits like Social Security Disability and Food Stamps. We support our clients by “navigating” the bureaucracies of government benefits and private health insurance so Islanders can not only enroll in, but also maintain these essential benefits.
Other services include our Prescription Assistance program which includes counseling for Medicare Part D (drug plans) and other prescription programs, and an emergency fund for short-term assistance paying for medicine and medical transportation; Vineyard Smiles, a mobile dental service for children of all ages and low-income seniors and disabled adults; and referrals to health care providers and related community resources.
