Maxem Health Offers Safe & Affordable Health Care Options During COVID-19 Pandemic


April 24, 2020

Maxem Health Urgent Care has been serving the healthcare needs of the MS Gulf Coast community for over ten years.  Amidst the chaos of the COVID-19 pandemic, those needs have changed, and Maxem Health Urgent Care has adapted to continue to give the community quality care when and how they need it.  This includes their new telehealth care, where patients can book virtual visit appointments online and see a provider from the safety of their home via a smartphone, tablet, or computer 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  For those that need to be seen in the clinic, Maxem Health also offers medical discount program plans for individuals and families that allow continuous healthcare coverage at any of their 13 facilities for a small monthly fee and visit copay.  These plans offer a savings upwards of $90 per visit.  Maxem Health continues to offer COVID-19 testing at all their sites, and soon they will offer rapid screening that will allow patients to receive same-day results.  Finally, Maxem Health pledges to offer the lowest health care prices on the MS Gulf Coast, and will work with all patients that may be struggling financially during this time so that no one goes without necessary care.

Maxem Health Urgent Care currently operates 10 clinics in Mississippi, with facilities in Pascagoula, Ocean Springs, D’Iberville, Gulfport, Picayune, Hattiesburg, Petal, Magee, Flowood, and McComb; they operate 3 clinics in Louisiana in Slidell, Mandeville, and Hammond.  Holly Harlan, Vice President and MS Gulf Coast resident says, “It is important for us to continue to offer access to care to all individuals in our communities and adapt during these uncertain times.  It is so inspiring to see how strong and supportive our communities have been.  Everyone is helping where they can, and we are doing our part.”
