McCook Clinic is no longer in-network with Healthy Blue Medicaid. Here are your options for how to change your Health Plan if you have missed the Open Enrollment period in November of 2022.
McCook Clinic will accept Nebraska Total Care and United Healthcare Community Plan.
If you became eligible in the last 90 days you can contact Heritage Health at 1-888-255-2605 Mon - Fri 7 AM – 7 PM CT and ask to change your plan to one that McCook Clinic will accept.
If it is now past the 90 day timeframe of you becoming eligible you can contact Heritage Health at 1-888-255-2605 Mon - Fri 7 AM – 7 PM CT and state that you have a “for-cause” reason to change health plans. This is a State-approved reason to change plans outside of Open Enrollment period and if you are past the 90 day timeframe of when you became eligible. Your “for-cause” options are:
Lack of access to covered medical services
Lack of access to medical providers
Dr. Corinne Phillips-Ward retires after almost 28 years of practice at McCook Clinic. Dr. Phillips-Ward came to McCook Clinic in 1994 after completing her Family Medicine Residency program at UNMC as well as a one-year fellowship in obstetrics and gynecology. Dr. Phillips-Ward has always had a passion for women's health and played a leading role in the delivery of countless babies during her career. In fact, she was the first female M.D. to join McCook Clinic!
As she transitioned her practice through the years, she watched those babies grow up and, for many, remained their health care provider into adulthood. Some of her patients have been with her throughout her entire career at McCook Clinic and that is most assuredly a testament to the care she provided as well as to her character.
Dr. Phillips-Ward has been an invaluable member of the McCook Clinic staff as well as to the Community she has served faithfully for so many years. She plans to spend her free time traveling and, of course, avidly supporting her beloved Huskers! GBR!
