“Did You Know” is a monthly series that includes valuable tips to help you get the most out of the benefits and services offered by the Division of Human Resources.

Convenient, Quality Health Care to Fit Your Lifestyle

If you’re a member of the University’s PENNCare/Personal Choice PPO medical plan, obtaining convenient and affordable health care is easier than ever. You and your family can now receive treatment at any one of five Walgreens Take Care ClinicsSM located in the Philadelphia region—all at the same cost as your usual primary care copay.

Take Care ClinicsSM are staffed by certified nurse practitioners who are licensed to write prescriptions. From treatment for minor cuts and scrapes to adult vaccinations, you can receive a wide range of patient care services to help you stay healthy year-round. Plus, Take Care Clinic practitioners maintain a comprehensive provider network if you need a referral to a primary care provider or specialist.

Keep in mind that patients must be at least 18 months old to receive care at Walgreens Take Care ClinicsSM. All clinics are open seven days a week—day or night—and no appointments are necessary. And remember, as a PENNCare/Personal Choice PPO plan member you already have access to dozens of CVS Minute Clinics in the Philadelphia region. That means you can receive personalized, quality health care that fits your lifestyle.
