ACCESS Family Care Medical & Dental Clinics came about from the vision of some forward thinking community leaders, in the mid 1990's.


This vision led to a small medical clinic in Pineville, Missouri and has grown to a mission carried out by more than 200 employees, in seven counties.


It is remarkable what a small group of people can do, when they try!  As Margaret Mead said, "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."

This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees. · Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service. · If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. · Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
