Frequently Asked Questions

Do you accept Medicaid (BadgerCare)? — Outreach accepts Medicaid, Medicare and most private insurance plans.

What if I don’t have insurance? — The lack of insurance is no barrier to care at Outreach. We offer a generous Sliding Fee Schedule and have Benefits Specialists on staff to help you access any insurance for which you may be eligible.

Can I get the same quality of care as I would receive at a clinic operated by one of the area’s health systems? — Yes. Stanford University researchers addressed this question in 2012 and found that community health center physicians performed as well as their private practice colleagues in 13 of the 18 measures of adherence to professional and federal guidelines and followed guideline recommendations a higher percent of the time on the other five.

Can I get the same level of care from a Nurse Practitioner as I would from an MD? Outreach’s Advance Practice Nurse Practitioners are Board-certified to diagnose, treat and provide comprehensive family and/or women’s healthcare. Under the supervision of our Chief Medical Officer, they can also prescribe any medications you may need.
