The We Care Physician Referral Network (We Care) provides access to necessary volunteer medical and dental services
for uninsured residents with low income. This program, which was established by the Alachua County Medical Society
(ACMS), is a partnership between the ACMS, the Alachua County Health Department, the Alachua County Board of
Commissioners, the Alachua County Dental Association, and other community programs. The We Care program components
include primary medical care, specialty medical care, and oral health services. Self-referrals are accepted for oral
health services. A participating We Care physician must initiate referrals for all medical services. We Care is not
an entitlement program. Services are limited by the availability of a volunteer provider.
Eligibility for volunteer medical and dental services is based on several factors including financial situation,
access to medical insurance, the presenting medical condition, and the type of service requested. A comprehensive
financial statement is required.
The We Care office is open Monday - Friday, from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. For information and appointments call 334-7926.
