Access Medical Centers of Oklahoma – a brand of Mesa-based NextCare Holdings, Inc., one of the nation’s leading providers of urgent care medicine and occupational medical services – announces the opening of a new center in the Oklahoma City metro area. This new clinic brings the total number of network locations throughout Oklahoma to 16.

We are honored to provide exceptional health care to communities throughout the state.”

This new location also builds upon the alliance between Access Medical Centers and Integris Health. The two entities have formed an affiliation to ensure patients have a complete continuum of care.
Says Bruce Lawrence, President and CEO for INTEGRIS Health, “The Access Medical Centers urgent care affiliation offers a gateway to INTEGRIS quality care within metro Oklahoma City. This new location helps us better serve the needs of people in the community.”

The Moore clinic is open seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. The clinic accepts most insurance plans, including SoonerCare, Blue Cross and Blue Shield, United Health Care, Medicare, Workers Compensation, and many others.

UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation Offers Grants

The UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation (UHCCF) is seeking grant applications from families in need of financial assistance to help pay for their child’s health care treatments, services or equipment not covered, or not fully covered, by their commercial health insurance plan.

Qualifying families can receive up to $5,000 per grant to help pay for medical services and equipment such as physical, occupational and speech therapy, counseling services, surgeries, prescriptions, wheelchairs, orthotics, eyeglasses and hearing aids.

To be eligible for a grant, children must be 16 years of age or younger. Families must meet economic guidelines, reside in the United States and have a commercial health insurance plan. Grants are available for medical expenses families have incurred 60 days prior to the date of application as well as for ongoing and future medical needs. Parents or legal guardians may apply for grants at www.uhccf.org, and there is no application deadline. Organizations or private donors can make tax-deductible donations to UHCCF at www.uhccf.org. Donations are used for grants to help children and families in the region in which they are received.

“The UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation is dedicated to improving a child’s health and quality of life by making it easier to access needed medical-related services. The grants enable families to focus on their children’s health instead of worrying about how they’ll pay their medical bills,” said Jeri Jones, CEO, UnitedHealthcare of Arizona. “Eligible families are encouraged to apply online for a medical grant today and take advantage of this valuable resource.”

In 2012, more than 36 grants totaling more than $95,000 were awarded to families in Arizona. Nationwide, more than 1,300 grants, worth more than $4.1 million, were awarded for treatments associated with medical conditions such as cancer, spina bifida, muscular dystrophy, diabetes, hearing loss, autism, cystic fibrosis, Down syndrome, ADHD and cerebral palsy. As successful fund-raising efforts continue to grow, UHCCF is hoping to help more children and families in 2013.
