LAWTON – MainStreet Clinic will sponsor a community forum Thursday, November 19 at the Lawton Constitution community room beginning at 6:00 p.m. titled Can I afford health insurance and the costs of getting health care, too?
Participants will “get the skinny on finding real, accessible care and wrap-around health insurance coverage that most people can afford,” said Dr. Brian Birdwell. He will provide general information about direct primary care, an innovative health care payment model, where patients become clinic members and are assured
- access to all clinic services on the same day or next day;
- unhurried extended-time clinic visits;
- contact with the clinic after hours by text or phone;
- discounts on many generic medications; and
- other premium services.
Joining Dr. Birdwell in the presentation will be Lynette Wallace, outreach and enrollment director at the Lawton Community Health Center. She will describe how Lawton residents may be able to access health insurance plans that wrap around direct primary care membership at prices most people can afford.
This community forum is free to attend. Please R.S.V.P. at (580) 248-9966.
