The Access Partnership, or TAP, of Johns Hopkins Medicine is a program designed to improve access to effective, compassionate, evidence-based primary and specialty care for uninsured and underinsured patients residing in the community surrounding The Johns Hopkins Hospital and Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center with demonstrated financial need. 

Eligible patients meet the following criteria:

  • Must be enrolled with a primary care physician at a participating primary care location; 
  • Must be uninsured or underinsured with demonstrated financial need and must not qualify for any other medical assistance programs; and
  • Must live within the program's designated geographic area.

Once the patient's referral for specialty care or diagnostic care has been approved the patient is required to show his/her personal commitment to receiving care by paying a non-refundable $20 participation fee. The specialty/diagnostic appointments will not be made until this fee is paid.


The program operates across five Johns Hopkins primary care locations and several primary care locations in the community:
