Maxem Health Urgent Care, is proud to extend our services, to improve the health of those in our communities, to our Veterans as part of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs new MISSION Act urgent care benefit.
The recent approval of the MISSION Act will allow our Veterans to access our local urgent cares without prior authorization starting on July 22, 2019, at our Maxem Health Urgent Care locations in Louisiana, and Mississippi..
Eligible Veterans will be covered for visits with Maxem Health providers for acute illness, injuries, and non-life-threatening symptoms. Our wide range of services to our Veterans, with TriWest, will include urgent care benefits such as flu-like symptoms, strep throat, minor burns, laceration repair, skin infections, diagnostic x-rays, splinting, lab testing, or medication refills.
