Introducing our McKinney Medical Village

We are excited to introduce Village Health Partners to the McKinney Community as we opened our third award winning location this January. One of the many reasons we decided to expand to McKinney is our commitment to making healthcare more conveniently accessible to you and your loved ones. The physicians and staff are thrilled to be a part of the close-knit community of McKinney. Our two leading physicians, Dr. Lowery and Dr. Hall, are focused on advancing best practices and are dedicated to delivering the highest quality of care. If you are currently seeking a family physician, please call 972-599-9600 to schedule an appointment.


Insurance Plans

Dear Valued Patients,

We understand how confusing it is to select an insurance plan or figure out if your plan is in network with your provider. It is also very difficult for the doctor to understand this as well. Here is the information we currently have for 2016.

Village Health Partners accepts plans that cover well over 95% of the commercially insured patients in the DFW area. In addition to the previous plans we accept, we have added a variety of new plans and are trying to get on others we have not been in network with in the past. The latter often can take months.

To help sort this out, we have listed our most common plans Village Heath Partners accepts under Resources tab. There are many, many more, in fact too many to list. We have not dropped any plans, however insurance companies create narrow network product offerings for the exchange that we may not be included in. Because this is so important to understand, we recommend our patients call their insurance carriers to confirm their plan is on the comprehensive list of plans we accept.

New Phone and Electronic Record Systems

Thank you for your patience during our transition to a new phone system. Our technical team has resolved most of the issues associated with the implementation. We sincerely appreciate your loyalty as we continue to become more familiar with sophisticated technology that helps us serve you better.

Village Health Partners upgraded to a new electronic record system September 9th. Staff and providers are continuing to work through the transition as well as assist in getting you, our patients, signed back up on the new portal. We are also changing to a new phone system November 6th that will allow us to accommodate all the phone calls more efficiently. We are continuing to work on correcting the problems associated with this transitional phase. We expect this to continue over the next 60 days as the technical issues are addressed and resolved. We sincerely apologize for this temporary inconvenience and appreciate the trust you have given us over the years to care for you.

For assistance signing in to the patient portal, email [email protected].

Changes to Accepted Insurance Plans

As a result of the Affordable Care Act, there are several new insurance plans with which we are not contracted. While we still work with the providers that offer these plans, the new plans are not included in the existing contracts we have with the providers.

In order to avoid any unexpected costs to you related to future visits, please review our accepted insurance providers and plans before scheduling your next appointment.

We are aware that this may cause some confusion and frustration, but please bear with us as we all work to adjust to the changes that come with the Affordable Care Act and healthcare reform.
