Thank you to Huntsville Lone Star Family Health Center for hosting the March Business After Hours. The newly opened center provides high quality, compassionate and individualized healthcare for individuals and families in Huntsville and Walker County. CEO Karen Harwell shared, “Unlike most primary care physician offices, Lone Star Family Health Center focuses on serving patients who typically find it difficult to access health care due to lack of insurance, insurance that is not accepted or simply not having the resources to afford cash prices, co-pays or deductibles. We accept Medicaid, CHIP, Medicare and most private insurance, offer affordable self-pay options, and have a sliding fee scale with eligibility. “ READ MORE
