NAM Physicians Help Nashville's Uninsured Through BTC Plus
The Nashville Academy of Medicine is proud to report that over 950 physicians have committed to see thousands of uninsured patients through the Bridges to Care Plus program. Since its April 2005 start, over $20 million in care has been donated by these volunteer doctors and their affiliated hospitals in the Nashville area.
Bridges to Care Plus (BTC Plus) is a collaborative effort between the Nashville Academy of Medicine and the Safety Net Consortium of Middle Tennessee, LLC, to provide a coordinated system of volunteer physicians, hospitals, laboratories, and pharmacies to assist Davidson County's uninsured access specialty care.
- BTC Plus has cultivated a network of healthcare professionals dedicated to providing medical care to Nashville’s uninsured at 200% of poverty
- Through this network, physicians agree to see one to two patients a month referred through the BTC Plus office so that there is equitable distribution of patients
- We are grateful for the generous participation of the following hospitals, which have donated the necessary inpatient and outpatient needs of BTC Plus patients, including surgeries, imaging and laboratory testing: Baptist Hospital, Centennial Medical Center, St. Thomas Hospital, Skyline Medical Center, Southern Hills Medical Center, and Summit Medical Center.
- Patients have access to generic prescriptions written by their assigned BTC Plus physicians at Kroger pharmacies for a $5 co-pay
WE NEED YOUR HELP! If you are interested in joining the Bridges to Care Plus volunteer network, please contact Kasey Anderson for more information.
