What Is Curbside Healthcare?
At MVA Health Centers, we are dedicated to the health and safety of our community and staff. To further improve access to healthcare services, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic, MVA has launched Curbside Healthcare giving patients the opportunity to receive in-person care in the comfort of their vehicles.
Who Can Use Curbside Healthcare?
Any patient who needs to see an MVA primary care, pediatric or ExpressCare provider for preventive care, treatment of a non-respiratory illness, or for routine chronic care can make a Curbside Healthcare appointment. Patients can also use Curbside Healthcare to pick up a prescription from the MVA pharmacy.
Patients experiencing symptoms that include shortness of breath, fever, cough and known exposure to COVID-19 may also utilize Curbside Healthcare for COVID-19 tests. They may also see a provider for evaluation at the provider’s discretion. If you are sick and do not receive provider approval for a Curbside Healthcare visit, we continue to provide care using Telehealth.
