ServicesThe Troup Cares Free Clinic provides a large range of services to our patients. 

  • Medical Home --- Each of our patients now have what they have never previously had; a Medical Home.  Our patients now come to the Troup Cares Free Clinic at the onset of medical issues and are able in most cases to correct them at that time.  This eliminates costly trips to the Emergency Room and potential hospital admissions.  Our patients know that we care for their well being.

  • Disease Management / Patient Education --- Our full time Program Manager / Registered Nurse is able to work with each patient and outline an individual program of care for each.  The Disease Management Program covers everything from proper diet, proper prescription drug usage, how to refill prescriptions at the proper time, etc.  We have also established a Patient / Clinic Responsibility document for review with each new patient as they arrive at the clinic for their initial visit.  Our nurse practitioner works within the Disease Management framework thus providing the best medical care and management possible.
  • Prescription Assistance Plan (PAP) --- Our in-house dispensary works in concert with pharmecudical companies, retail pharmacies and other direct relief agencies. Our team monitors prescription drug usage and timing for resupply to make sure that our patients have adequate medication on an ongoing basis.
