Coastal Medical Access Project Volunteer Program

The Coastal Medical Access Project (CMAP) clinic provides health care to pre-qualified, uninsured adult residents who are not covered by Medicare or Medicaid and live in Brantley, Camden, Charlton, Glynn and McIntosh counties. CMAP's MedBank Membership Program assists qualified residents in 13 southeast Georgia counties in accessing free prescription medications. Nonclinical volunteers at CMAP provide administrative and clerical support while clinical volunteers provide direct patient care.
 
Nonclinical volunteers can help at CMAP in a variety of ways:
  • Greeting patients
  • Answering the phone
  • Assembling and filing charts
  • Performing other clerical duties
  • Process Prescription Assistance Program applications
  • Call in prescription refill requests
  • Call patients to notify them that their prescription is ready.
 
Clinical volunteers, nurses, physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, dentists and hygienists provide primary, specialty and dental care to patients at CMAP clinics. These licensed health care providers can apply for sovereign immunity through the Georgia Volunteer Health Care Program of the Department of Public Health.
