Effective October 1, 2020, the Connally Memorial Urgent Care will continue to be of service to you under a new name, Convenient Care, providing the same walk in service you have been accustomed to. Patients with Primary Care Physician’s within the Connally Memorial Clinic network, please feel free to schedule a Convenient Care appointment or walk in.

After November 1, 2020, Convenient Care will offer the following cash payment options for patients who have a Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) insurance plan and a Primary Care Physician outside of the Connally Memorial Clinic network.

  1. The initial office charge is $130 for a new patient which is identified as a patient who has not been treated within the Connally Memorial Clinic network.
  2. The charge for an established patient is $85 which is identified as a patient who has been treated by a Connally Memorial Clinic provider within 2 years of your most recent visit. Should the provider order additional services the patient will be able to review and decide their treatment options before continuation of services.

We encourage you to click here to see a full list of Board-Certified Physicians that accept new patients daily. If you would like to change your Primary Care Physician to one of our Connally Memorial providers, please call your insurance health plan directly to make the change prior to your appointment.

We would love to continue to serve you and provide quality treatment to our surrounding community. We do apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Please call our office for any questions or concerns you may have during this transition period, 830-393-1400.
