Community health center opening in Hyrum

It was designed to meet the health care needs of the uninsured and the under-insured and Family Nurse Practitioner Chad Speth says the Cache Valley, Bear Lake and new Hyrum Community Health Centers take a holistic approach to maintaining a healthy community.Speth works full time at the new Hyrum location but, like the other professionals, he also rotates when needed to the other centers. On KVNU’s Crosstalk show Tuesday Speth said complete medical services are available and the cost is based on a person’s ability to pay.”We have a sliding fee scale so we’re able to look at a patient’s income, if they’re uninsured, if they’re under-insured and then tailor their billing to their income,” Speth explained. “They often qualify for reduced payment programs. But we also take insurances. For people who have insurance we take a variety of insurance programs.”He says there is also an in-house pharmacy where prescriptions are purchased at discount prices for those eligible for the reduction. Speth invites the public to attend the open house in Hyrum on Thursday, December 3rd from 3 to 8 p.m. where there will be free medical, mental health and nutrition screenings along with door prizes and refreshments. The address is 26 West Main Street, Suite A.
