A mid adult female doctor sits at her desk across from an unrecognizable senior couple. She laughs with them as she shares good news.

MainStreet Family Care and KidsStreet Urgent Care clinics are proud to accept Medicaid patients! As the largest program providing medical and health-related services to children, family, and individuals in need, Medicaid can be difficult to navigate. We’re here to tell you that navigating Medicaid is about to get easier. Here are 4 things you should know about your Medicaid Plan and how it’s changing…for the better.

Your Plan is Changing October 1

Beginning October 1, your Medicaid plan will be changing–for the better. You will still have a limited number of visits, but Medicaid patients will be able to choose their provider. Gone are the days of being assigned a physician. Now, you’ll be able to choose a Medicaid provider that is a good fit for you and your family.

You Can Change Your Provider…and Select Us

That’s right. After October 1, you can change from your current provider and select MainStreet Family Care simply by walking-in. We have late hours, are open 7 days-a-week, and offer the convenience of accepting walk-ins. We are happy to be your selected provider and offer you and your family the care and convenience you deserve.

For patients that meet the requirements, we also offer the added convenience of online appointments, sending direct messages with the clinic through our portal, and receive direct messages from the clinic. To see if our Family Select plan is a good fit for you, click here to learn more.

You No Longer Need a Referral to See Us

Keep reading. It just keeps getting easier! No more required referrals from your primary care provider will be needed after October 1. This means that, even if you have another primary care provider, you don’t need a referral to come see us. We can take all Medicaid patients without any referral. It’s just that simple!

You Can Come to Us for Urgent Care

Since you don’t need a referral, you can come see us for urgent care! Life happens. We know kids get bumps and bruises and need the occasional stitches or x-ray. We also know that most primary care providers don’t have late night or weekend hours. That’s where we come in.

Our doors are always open. Starting October 1st, all you have to do is walk-in. We’re open 7-days-a-week, late nights, and weekends. If you have further questions or would like to know more about our Family Select primary care program, email us at info@mainstreetfamilycare.com.
