For WyJo Care, a 501c3 funded by the WyJo Medical Society, opening doors means removing the logistical and financial barriers to specialty medical and dental care for patients and their health care providers.
Based on the principal of sharing the load of caring for the uninsured across a broad section of the provider community, providers commit to seeing a discrete number of uninsured each year.
Our patients, all of whom are uninsured or under-insured, are referred to us for specialty medical care from safety net primary care providers throughout Johnson and Wyandotte county.
Our patients live at or below 200 percent of the federal poverty level. A third of our patients speak a language other than English.
