After determining the type of services you need you will need to locate the appropriate Missouri Highlands Health Care Center nearest you. Then contact us by phone to schedule an appointment.

All Missouri Highlands Health Care Centers accept patients regardless of payer. If uninsured or underinsured and approved for the Sliding Fee Scale, fees are based on household size and income.

Planning For Your Visit

Except in urgent situations, we would like you to call several days ahead for an appointment. Preventive care, such as family planning, well-child exams and physicals, are usually scheduled two to three weeks in advance. If you need an appointment on the same day, please call early in the morning. We will do the best we can to see you.

To help us give you the right kind of appointment, please tell the receptionist enough information about your medical concern.

NOTE: Since we do not provide child care services, if you are bringing children who do not have an appointment, please bring someone along to care for your children during your appointment. Our staff cannot take this responsibility.

We accept walk-in visits for established patients from 8:30am to 3:00pm each day. Patients with urgent medical issues (ie. sick or injured) will be worked in as soon as we can based on need. Only the illness at hand will be discussed. All other medical issues and/or medication refills will be addressed in a separate scheduled visit.

All non-emergent problems, like medication refills, will be seen after all scheduled appointments.

As a Courtesy to Others, We Reserve the Right to Reschedule Your Appointment If You are More Than 15 Minutes Late.

Good Faith Estimate: Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.

Payment Options

Finances are important to everyone. What are your options?

Insurance vs No Insurance:
Missouri Highlands Health Centers serve patients with and without insurance. We accept most insurance and will either file claims for you or help with the completion of claims when needed. Uninsured and underinsured patients are asked to complete a Sliding Fee Application prior to service. If eligible, costs will be determined based on household size and income.

Sliding Fee Scale:
The sliding fee application will help determine the cost for service based on household size and income. Missouri Highlands serves all patients whether insured or not. To see if you qualify, complete the simple application and bring it to your first visit along with proof of income and your last tax return.
