What to bring with you
When you come in for an appointment at the Medical Access Clinic, make sure to bring any insurance information you have including your Medicaid or Medicare card or other insurance card. If you do not have insurance, please bring proof of your current income. This could be a recent pay stub, bank statement, or other document that shows your current household income. This is to help us determine what portion of the charges for your visit you may be asked to pay.
Also be sure to bring any Medical Records or medications you may have. This will help us provide you with the best possible care.
