Screening for Life and Health Care Connection (formerly Community Healthcare Access Program or CHAP) assists uninsured Delaware residents who meet specific financial requirements to obtain preventive healthcare, as well as medical services at an affordable cost. The discounts are based on a resident's income and ability to pay. The Delaware Health Care Commission administers the program with funding support from the Delaware Tobacco Settlement Funds.

Beebe’s bilingual coordinators screen patient's for eligibility and then enroll the patient in any one of a number of medical assistance programs, including discounted services offered by Beebe Healthcare.  Health Care Connection's normal process is to screen everyone for Medicaid, Insurance Market Place eligibility or exemption and other state and private programs. Beebe coordinators have numerous resources for eligible patients that may be available to assist you. Affordable physician services are available through the Voluntary Initiative Program (VIP) that can be accessed through Screening for Life and CHAP. This program, made up of a network of private physicians, was created by the Medical Society of Delaware and is administered by the Delaware Foundation for Medical Services.
