About Reach Out of Montgomery County

Reach Out is a 501(c)3 volunteer healthcare organization, founded in 1994 by three medical leaders in the Miami Valley area: Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine, Public Health–Dayton and Montgomery County, and the Montgomery County Medical Society.

Mission

Reach Out's mission is to provide access to health care services for the underserved/uninsured population in Montgomery County, without restraints, utilizing the professional skills of volunteer physicians, nurses, and other health care professionals.

Eligibility

All age groups and/or disease conditions, uninsured with an income at or below 200 percent of the poverty level are eligible. (See the chart on our Patients page for more information.) Identification is required at clinic registration. A photo ID is preferred (driver's license, state ID).

Services

Reach Out provides telemedicine visits for chronic conditions that need immediate follow up. Telemedicine clinic visits and labs are at no cost to the patient. Ancillary services such as pharmacy and x-ray are limited based on current contracts.

Referrals

Referrals to Reach Out's subspecialist network are dependent on availability of services requested. In most cases, the physicians' professional fees are waived; however, patients may incur costs at the specialist's office for tests or procedures performed. Payment for costs incurred is the responsibility of the patient. Reach Out performs scheduling for most specialist visits. Patients will be notified of their appointment date and time by mail or phone. Patients who do not show for scheduled specialty appointments are not eligible to return to Reach Out for one year.

Funding

Funding for Reach Out is provided by our community in the form of foundations, grants, corporate, and individual giving. A grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation in 1994 initiated the Reach Out program.


Reach Out reserves the right to refuse care based on patient misconduct, capacity of clinic volunteer staff, and other constraints beyond its control.

Reach Out does not prescribe or have on site controlled substances or narcotics as described under Ohio State Board of Pharmacy regulation Category II.
