Whatcom Project Access
Not all health care needs can be met by your primary care provider or family doctor. Generally, patients are referred to a specialist by their primary care provider for a specific condition or diagnosis. For example, if you have been diagnosed with a heart condition, your doctor may refer you to a cardiologist, a provider that specializes in heart conditions.
WAHA is a partner in Whatcom Project Access (WPA), a community program where doctors, the hospital, and supporting service providers donate specialty care to uninsured, low income people in Whatcom County. WPA is not a medical insurance and is meant to be used only as a short term option for people who have no other way to get medically necessary specialty care.
