At our pediatric urgent care clinics we offer pediatric care that are urgent, but not an emergency. It is characterized by convenience because referrals or appointments are not required. Pediatric Urgent Care clinics are the preferred choice of families alongside their family doctors for urgent pediatric services. BCBSTX does not require referrals or prior authorizations for emergency or urgent care for in or out-of-network Medicaid enrolled providers.

Members are encouraged to call their PCP during office hours for urgent care or if they already have a specialist that has treated the child for urgent issues they can contact the specialist directly. It was my third appearance at the Urgent Care Center in the last two weeks. By now, I’d become best friends with the nurse practitione. We love little ones!

Bring your child in for all common pediatric care needs like immunizations, developmental check-ups, hearing and vision screenings, school and sports physicals, routine lab work, minor injuries, and more. Your active participation in this process helps us continually improve quality of care and patient safety throughout Tanner Health system. If you see something, say something! We welcome your feedback. Benjamin S. Pitts, Esq.
