Chronic Care Management

The Chronic Care Management Program at Medical Clinic of Muleshoe was established to help Medicare patients with diabetes, arthritis, high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke and other chronic conditions to play a more active and effective role in the management of their health. If you have a chronic condition, and would like to join the health improvement team, call 806-272-7544 to schedule an Annual Wellness Visit with your primary care provider to discuss enrollment. Participation in the Chronic Care Management program is offered free-of-charge to eligible Medicare patients.

Medicare Wellness Visits

If you are covered by Medicare, you are eligible for a free Annual Medicare Wellness Visit to talk with your provider about ways to improve your health and prevent disease.  The Annual Wellness Visit is not the same as an annual physical exam, but it does provide patients with the same opportunity to talk with their provider about health concerns and to develop a plan in partnership with those providers to focus on health, rather than illness. 

Some of the services covered during an Annual Wellness Visit include:  routine measurements such as weight, height and blood pressure; review of your individual and family medical history, review of your current medications, discussion of the care you receive from other providers, and review of your functional ability and level of safety.  Based on this review, you and your provider will develop a health promotion and disease prevention plan based on your specific needs.

After your initial wellness visit, you are eligible for a follow-up or subsequent wellness visit every 12 months.  These visits are not subject to copayments to deductibles, so there is no cost to the individual. Call Medical Clinic of Muleshoe at 806-272-7544 to schedule your Annual Wellness Visit.

Muleshoe Area Medical Center and Medical Clinic of Muleshoe serve all patients regardless of ability to pay. 

Discounts for uninsured patients seeking medically necessary care provided by the hospital and clinic are offered based on the size of the patient’s immediate family, annual household income, and a sliding scale comparing household income with the hospital and clinic’s charity care income guidelines.  

Uninsured patients may apply for a discount in the hospital business office, or clinic front desk.

Our providers contract with most major health insurance companies and participate in the plans these companies offer.  A partial list of insurance companies with which we have contracts can be found below. Please feel free to call us if you have any questions.

  • Medicare
  • Medicaid
  • BCBS
  • Aetna
  • Cigna
  • Tricare
  • United Health Care
  • Firstcare

If you have medical insurance, please provide that information to our staff when you make your appointment. We will verify your eligibility and file a claim on your behalf.  Providing your insurance information in advance will help speed you through check in at the time of your appointment.

Copays, coinsurance and deductibles are due at the time of service. Not all services, even those most people consider routine, will be covered by every insurance plan. If you have questions about specific benefits, please contact your insurance carrier. Services not covered by your insurance plan are the patient’s responsibility.
