Family is at the heart of everything we do, and so we offer health care for the whole family. We provide other support services that help individuals and families address needs that might fall out of the normal scope of healthcare. If you need help with your taking care of your children, signing up for health insurance, getting transportation to your appointments, access to our pharmacy, or more information regarding our telehealth services, we have options for you.
Our pharmacy team members collaborate with our providers to dispense safe and effective medications at affordable prices. We serve all Sam Rodgers patients including the uninsured and accept most major insurance plans as well as clinic discounts. We are equipped with experienced, knowledgeable, and friendly staff who are eager to serve our patients.

We want the process of applying for health coverage to be easy for your family! Sam Rodgers provides free application and enrollment assistance for our patients who need help applying for Medicaid/CHIP (MOHealthNet) and the ACA Marketplace. We also provide this service free to any consumer living in the communities we serve whether they are one of our patients or not.
Sam Rodgers implemented our telehealth services during the COVID-19 pandemic to allow our patients to receive care and connect with our services from their homes. This technology allows us to keep you safe but still connect for the care you need. We will continue to have this technology available to you even after the pandemic since it can be used for a fairly wide of health situations. However, these services are slightly limited and some cases may require an in-person appointment.
In partnership with Nurture KC and the Kansas City Healthy Start Initiative, our Healthy Start Community Health Workers support mothers and their families during and after pregnancy. Find the care and help you need when dealing with a newborn.
