OSF Access Clinic

Doctor and patient The OSF Access Clinic is a practice you can visit when you don’t have a doctor already in place to take care of your medical needs.

Examples of this include:

  • You just moved to the area and have not had time to find a new doctor. We can give you medical care until you do.
  • Your insurance plan has changed and you need to find a new doctor.
  • You ended up in the hospital, but don’t have a doctor to care for you after you are released.
  • You’ve just been released from an urgent care site but don’t have a doctor to take care of you while you recover. We want you to focus on taking care of your health instead of worrying about not having a doctor.

Services we provide

We can help you with a variety of issues including:

  • Hospital follow-up care
  • Medication refills

How can I use the OSF Access Clinic?

The OSF Call Center will refer you to us if you’ve called them to set up an appointment with a new doctor and there is a long period of time before your first visit with that doctor. If you need to be seen before your first visit, call 1-888-6 ASK OSF (1-888-627-5673), to get a referral to the OSF Access Clinic.

How does billing work?

You will be billed the same as a regular office visit. We also care for any patient in need of follow-up, including those without insurance.

Can the OSF Access Clinic help me find a doctor?

Yes. If you don’t already have a doctor, we can help you find one. This will be done at the time of your first visit with us.
