Twice I wanted to get back to as far as the services such you mentioned if a patient doesn't have health insurance can they still be seeing. Absolutely. Absolutely we see patients regardless of your insurance status where you're nearly a day. Because and what that means is. We can see patients for as late as Tariq I'm out her eyes and on the paint income because we ate at a sliding keel rating and until we can see it he should. Have a full opposite. Just thirty dollars and that your lab working well. So I'm beatable. Affordable. Quality health exactly. And the timing. Under it tries if you will because. Just the conversation. Of health care overall. Across the nation and in this country. Obviously has become a very hot topic of discussion. Given the fact that it it's really been a world wind if you will we talk about the current administration. The changes it was trying to make as regards the Affordable Care Act. And a lot of people really just at a crossroads. As to whether they would even have the opportunity to have affordable health care. And now that we see it is possible especially with united health centers. Yes and and Renee that's. Excellent rain and wet week. Our patient isn't. Perspective patient yeah he's in is.

Very very special young gentleman in and I say that because you don't knowing him outside of of that position. I don't know if you were aware he probably does he want me saying it's right we happen to be high school classmates. Sell in having. No bullish on line. War waved back in the case said so to speak. And to see where he is now. And that's that is LeSean when you talk about a person who is not only. Compassionate.

Commitment exactly and passion and dedication Brett that's what is. Oh lead into red and the organization to crowds so quickly.

You're wonderful company and thank you for tuning into this broadcast. Our public affairs show heard Saturday and Sunday mornings on our intercom stations. And a wonderful opportunity to sit down with members of our community focused family. And that's exactly what's taking place as I'm Renee Von along with special projects manager of united health center Chinese statement. Is back with me twice we have such a wonderful first half. In our conversation we're continuing. To share not only what you HC offers to the community. But again a reminder if you are just joining us family Saturday August 19. Tenant so too is the annual community day and healthier. Your official invitation to be a part of an event that we're gonna go into more detail to about tries forgiving just the particulars the location will be 2101. Peters creek parkway and Winston-Salem. Try as we mentioned earlier about an opportunity to not only see this is a great family event but we were mentioning some of the services you receive provides. We wanted to sort of recap if you will the immunizations. Will be made available to you to talk about shore shore. An annual cleaning decaying national unity just mentioned. We will be offering. Immunizations. For children and going to the schools appearance. Please if you need to get shots for your your child is an immunize these canal. Immunizations will be free from Medicaid pay each period and in addition that we are going to get out bags full of also my name. And we just lining out and bring your kids sprinkle annaly to have. Wonderful wonderful. And in addition to that of course is the services that. UAC provides outside. Of wonderful community events such as that so how much does an actual visit tries Costa we can talk about. Excellent question. And in that a concern for so many eggs and particularly those huge did not have insurance or are underinsured. We keep patient you know enters Ricard list of your insurance status in your ability to pay so. On an opposite is it including land. Can be as little as 35 hours per visit on us and we east that in a slight piece written in. You keep it high quality. Portable comprehensive health care. Early thirty odd is it long and we are so is proud to be able opera teen. To residents who really need. Excellent. And tries as we mentioned earlier. Relocations. And will give the particulars of that. A little later in the program but one thing that you mentioned earlier when a tube re in a rate for those who probably when not witnessed during the first half of the program. The nice thing about UnitedHealth senators and really this is that all of your location should accept want cans. So if any let's just say particular emergency. May rise and that's the unique thing about when we just look at health care in general. Sometimes we just don't know what's gonna happen in a typical day. And there are a lot of places where you're just unable to go because unfortunately those hours. Aren't conducive to handle lane. Emergencies or things I just happened to rise. So how nice that not only do you take in most want cans but the next question that real. I think ties in with that are you don't we can't advance the ire of the hour and we can figure slightly frightening. You just know what's gonna happen and exactly and a half accessed at health care and know that you happened medical home sure peace of mind and you know in a lot of play is currently seeking in. Can be month course. It is they're just not accepting new patients but again. Accepting new patients. On three hour SPX we are at an on week in. We have week in hours and has offices and extended hours during the day. And listeners can go to our reps I you know each in turn it. And it. In Egypt which locations and iriki. Hours are on the web site into you can either call in or on nine inches or why it for a incumbent. The excellent. A choice I wanted to also and hopefully I'm not thrown a curve ball on this getting back to the immunizations. In other important health issues with her children. What about for the parents who have young ones that want to engage in sports we know a lot of times we gotta get that physical. Before we can swing a ball kick a ball thrown well. This situation may be Liz I remember back in the days when you and I were in school in. In order to engage in those various activities of course we have to take necessary. Precautions just to make sure that we try to stay as safe. As we possibly can when engaging in sports suicide another thing that UH UHC offers as far as the physicals we are kids yeah. We sports physicals. Annual as the currency. And sour again parents can't and even tell you why you come in get this home so I'm in just have a health screening were also doing. On hearing that in eighty day going get you that you took a minute we were doing free health screening of the community as well. So kids can get immunizations. They can get school supplies they can get a free health screening very well end the year at the asking re excellent. And of course to try and so I'm glad that you mention that because we think about the various health screenings. So many different. Medical and I don't wanna use the were concerned so let me try to find another word. There you go I like that thank you that many of us face especially. Our communities. Of color. We talk about high blood pressure which can be a big issue when we talk about diabetes. And unfortunately. These are some of the lead even. Instances in which. The rate. Had which an individual perhaps is is going through that difficulty. We're suffering with type two diabetes are suffering with high blood pressure. The nice thing about. And I don't know if I even should use that word look let me refer he's had a little bit if you will. The wonderful thing in terms of these screenings is that we're likely. At a point in which we possibly can save someone's life. I remember from 1. Our former morning show house. That was the big scene of that show was tickled to the doctor. And you neighbor called back and so we think about that. Being an event that took place only during that one specific month. Of the year. Take a loved one to the doctor really in a lot of instances trying should be every. It she is in all it shape. And health screening can thieves and Epson. And Lincoln be blocking him ran feeling. You know sleepy or tired here in just not know why just think that is speaking here. Quit your could be some mean underlying going home and help that. I say it with pressure. It is a thatch. Such it can be Furrey did he can't end it costs so many problems in the IP and so. Just getting a simple health screening getting your impressions antiques and you know if if you're in a dangerous now you isn't it immediate. Could be. The difference between having good health and where. So church ice and I just had this thought you. That typically. And I wanna put a hold of this. On the gentleman but sometimes. Ladies both of us as mothers and wives and girlfriends and sisters. And family members of the light. Lot of times it takes a little tugging. To get our fellas to go it isn't just for us ladies two weeks we have those instances where there is that hesitation. To visited doctor but the one thing too I think about when you have an event that hasn't in the community setting. A lot of people don't like the so called environment of going to a doctor office visits just isn't necessarily. Dirt days. So what wonderful opportunity to be now in an area we have a lot of community and family activity. Where sometimes it it may lessen the stress. If you will when you're getting that health screening. You're not necessarily in that office and you're sitting there and you're waiting for the doctor or the nurse. Or some sort of medical professional to come in because if. One thing and this is just I think speaking from personal experience from all of us a lot of times we simply don't like to go because of the fact that we do have to wait. Yes yes. Well you know we letters now from being theory of fish and rabbit ear moderate DL with our appointments and how we're able to heave it blocking and instant. So on and and we had theory Haitians enters. Practice. Our doctors are firmly supports atmosphere Howell. Me and partner with their community agent east you'd bring you resource is for patients and which really act needy century patient and treat. How things. And that's only if there are absolutely tries nicely sat. Me ask you this then when we think about UnitedHealth sinners. And the three great locations you have in the greater Winston-Salem area. You might have a person might be listening sync all of that is wonderful but what if I am someone who lives outside of Forsyth County. Kim that individual.
