We provide both low-cost and free health care and no one is turned away if they are not able to pay.
I have no insurance. Can I come to myHealth?
We are happy to see clients without health insurance. We even have staff that are able to help you find out if you qualify for a low-cost state health insurance plan.
Do my parents have to be with me or be aware that I am coming to myHealth?
If you are coming to our clinic for birth control, pregnancy testing, STI testing and treatment, your parents do not need to be with you. This is required by the Minnesota state law, known as the Minor Consent Law. If you are coming for general medical care, like a sports physical, strep throat check, asthma care, an injury, or for counseling services, your parents must come with you to the visit if you are under the age of 18.
What will happen at my first visit?
The first time you come to the clinic you will be asked to fill out paperwork and a medical history form with many questions. We ask all of these detailed questions so that we can get to know you better, and these questions help us provide the best care possible for you. You will meet with friendly nurses and providers who will take care of all your needs. Our front desk staff will also talk with you about insurance and methods of payment. Please remember that if you don’t have money that is OK. We never turn anyone away if they are not able to pay. Check out more at our What's an Appointment Like? page.
What should I bring to my first visit?
You should bring your insurance card if you have insurance. We may help you sign up for a confidential insurance plan, so if would be helpful for you to bring your social security number, birth certificate, driver’s license or passport, and a month’s worth of paystubs if you are employed. If you don’t have these things, our staff is able to help you figure out how to get them. In addition, please bring in a list of current medications you are taking.
Can my friend come in the exam room with me?
You are always welcome to bring a friend in for support. Our nurses will want to have a few minutes alone with you to ask a few questions before your friend comes in, so don’t worry if they ask your friend to stay in the lobby for the first part of your visit.
Can I get prescriptions mailed to me while I’m away at college?
We see many clients that go away to school all over the United States. We are happy to mail medications to you at your school at no extra cost. All you have to do is call the clinic nurse and ask her to mail them out, make sure to give her your school address. NuvaRings can not be mailed, however, a prescription can be sent to your pharmacy. Please remember that when you are home for break, you will want to schedule your annual physical at that time.
Can a friend pick up my birth control for me?
Typically this is not an option for clients at myHealth. If you are really in a jam, call us at 952-474-3251 and ask to speak to a nurse about your options. In certain circumstances, birth control pills can be sent in the mail.
Can I see a dentist at myHealth?
Children’s Dental Services provides low-cost dental care at myHealth one day a month at our Hopkins site for anyone from birth to 26 years of age. A clinic nurse can give you information about scheduling an appointment.
I don’t have a ride. How can I get to the clinic?
Our Hopkins clinic is on multiple bus routes. Please use the metro transit website to find more information about bus routes that serve our Hopkins location: http://metrotransit.org/. If you do not have transportation, you will want to check with your friends, family, or other support systems to see if they are able to assist you with transportation. We have bus tokens available, so please ask when you arrive.
I have another doctor but I want to come to myHealth. Can I do that?
Sometimes clients are not able to get into their primary care clinic as fast as they would like. At myHealth we provide same day or next day appointments, so we are happy to see you when you are not able to get into your primary care clinic. It is very helpful to our providers if you bring medical records with you, so that we know what care has been given to you in the past. Other times clients may come to us for their birth control or STI testing, but want to see their other doctor for general health care. That is also OK.
I need help now. What can I do?
Call our clinics at 952-474-3251 and one of our clinic nurses would be happy to answer any questions you may have. If we are closed, please leave a message or call the overnight after-hours number of 952-993-7700 to speak with a family medicine medical resident at Park Nicollet Creekside Clinic. They will take your name and number and a doctor will call you back. Always remember, if it is an emergency, dial 911.
