CareFirst Carolina Foundation

Friends and Neighbors Fund

we make a difference Approximately half of the patients provided primary care at CareSouth Carolina health centers are uninsured. Many need specialty care (cardiology consults, urology consults, endocrinologists etc)  or additional diagnostic services (CT or MRIs). Unfortunately, there is no funding available to pay for these and many other services. The Friends and Neighbors fund was created to fill that void. It provides financial assistance to qualified CareSOUTH Carolina patients for specialty care like Mammograms, pathology testing, specialty OB/GYN care, eye exams, emergency dental assistance, specialty provider consultations, emergency medications and other services for patients in desperate, emergency need.
