HVMG ConvenientCare Welcomes Gateway Health Patients
Effective September 1, 2014, Gateway Health, a medical assistance (Medicaid) and Medicare managed care organization, has contracted with Heritage Valley Medical Group ConvenientCare walk-in clinics to provide insurance coverage and access for their patient base. Previously, ConvenientCare services provided to Gateway Health patients were considered uncovered and required patients to pay out of pocket fees for services rendered.
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 and Ellwood City medical neighborhoods as well as the Monaca and East Liverpool, Ohio Walmarts.
“We are pleased that Gateway Health 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 Sue Frank, CRNP, Director of Provider Practice Operations. “Plus, 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.”
