RediClinic Adds Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield Coverage in Fayetteville and Rogers
Date:9/26/2007

HOUSTON, Sept. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- RediClinic LLC today announced that several of its nurse practitioners at its clinics in Fayetteville and Rogers, Ark., are now in-network providers for Arkansas Blue Cross Blue Shield, Health Advantage, USAble Group Life, USAble Administrators and Blue Advantage members. Customers of Arkansas Blue Cross and its family of companies now can use their insurance to pay for healthcare services at RediClinics.

The Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shields agreements are with nurse practitioners employed by RediClinics located in the Wal-Mart Supercenters in Fayetteville and Rogers. RediClinic also operates clinics in nine Wal-Mart Supercenters in Richmond, Va.; two in Wal-Mart Supercenters in Tulsa, Okla.; 18 in H-E-B stores in Houston, Austin and San Antonio, Texas; and 16 in Walgreens stores in Atlanta, Ga. Additional RediClinics are scheduled to open throughout 2007.

"We welcome members of Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield and its family of companies to our Fayetteville and Rogers clinics," said Web Golinkin, president and chief executive officer of RediClinic. "The health plans issued by Arkansas Blue Cross and its affiliates will provide coverage for many of the health-care services their insured members will receive at RediClinics."

RediClinics are staffed by certified nurse practitioners who work with local physicians to diagnose, treat and prescribe medications for common medical conditions, such as earaches, strep throat and upper respiratory infections. They also administer a wide range of preventive services, including health screenings, flu shots and other vaccinations, and back-to-school physical exams. RediClinics are open seven days a week (including most holidays) and offer extended hours on weekdays. Adults and children over age two are welcome, no appointments are necessary, and a typical visit takes about 15 minutes.

RediClinic uses a proprietary electronic medical record system to document and guide patient visits. This system ensures patient suitability to RediClinic's limited scope of practice and facilitates continuity of care when other clinicians are involved. Patients who cannot be treated at RediClinic, or who need ongoing treatment, are referred to their primary care provider, if they have one, or to other physicians in their communities.

RediClinic visits are covered by a growing number of national and regional health plans. However, those who are covered by health plans that do not currently have agreements with RediClinic receive specially formatted receipts that can be filed for possible reimbursement.

-- 4208 Pleasant Crossing Rogers Ark. 72758
