Heritage Valley ConvenientCare is pleased to announce that UPMC for You, the Medical Assistance (Medicaid) program of UPMC Health Plan, is now accepted at all six ConvenientCare walk-in clinic locations. UPMC Health Plan has contracted with Heritage Valley Medical Group ConvenientCare walk-in clinics to provide insurance coverage and access for their UPMC for You patient base.
Heritage Valley Medical Group ConvenientCare is open 7 days a week with extended hours providing treatment for minor illness and injuries by a staff of Certified Registered Nurse Practitioners. ConvenientCare walk-in clinics are located in the Chippewa, Edgeworth, Ellwood City and West Allegheny medical neighborhoods as well as the Monaca and East Liverpool, Ohio Wal-Mart stores.
“We are pleased that UPMC for You now covers their patients to be seen in our ConvenientCare locations. Now, instead of going to the Emergency Department, patients with minor symptoms and injuries will actually receive excellent care more quickly at ConvenientCare clinics,” said John Luellen, MD, chief operating and chief quality officer at Heritage Valley Health System. “Additionally, our ConvenientCare locations are directly connected to Heritage Valley’s full service network of care – primary and specialty physicians, hospitals, full service labs and diagnostic centers. This enables medical information to be shared between all services lines, resulting in more efficient, cost effective care delivery.”
