Can I get my prescriptions filled?
Patients who need medication must be seen by a provider at CCFC before receiving a prescription through this facility. This rule applies even if you were just seen by a provider at a different institution.
Can I come in just to pick up medications?
If you have seen a provider at CCFC before, you may call our Nurse Manager Rebecca Steffes at 608-930-2232, or stop by the clinic Tuesday through Friday from 10-4 p.m. to determine if you may need lab testing, or provider or nursing care prior to medication refills.
If you send me to the ER, is it still free?
No. CCFC does not have the resources to cover ER expenses. In some instances, if it is necessary for you to visit the ER and you do not have the funds, a program called Community Care at the local hospitals can assist you. Inquiries should be made at the ER.
If you refer me somewhere, is it still free?
Not necessarily. Some of our referrals are free of charge whereas some are not. Some provide a free initial visit but charge for any further visits. It is best to check with our staff and the institution of referral.
