Win a Free iPad!

Are you a patient at Family Practice Associates?  If so, you could win a free iPad just for having a patient portal!  Here's how it works!  

If you don't currently have a patient portal, call us at 308-865-2767 and ask for an invite (for you and anyone else in your family who is a patient here)!  

Once you have your portal set up, send ONE private message from your portal to your physician answering at least one of the following three questions:   (1.) Is your medication list correct?  If not, what should be changed?; (2.) Have you had immunizations elsewhere that are not in the immunization record on the portal?; (3.) How do you like the portal?

Do this by December 31, 2014 and your name will be entered in a drawing for a free iPad!

Remember, if you already have a portal account, you can participate, too!  We look forward to hearing from you!

(Oh yes, the rules:  only one entry per patient!  If you have any problems or need instructions for sending a message, please let us know!)

So, Why Should You Have a Patient Portal?

Would you like to see your medical information any time, 24 hours a day?  How about easily accessing your child's immunization record whenever you need it?  Paying bills late at night and wish you could pay off your clinic account, too?  Contact your doctor through secure email?  Or, maybe request a prescription refill?  You can do all of this and more by opening a free patient portal account!  Call us today at (308) 865-2767 and we will send you an invite!

November 12, 2014:  Blue Cross Blue Shield announced this week that BCBS members will pay in-network out-of-pocket amounts at CHI hospitals in Kearney and four other communities. This means members will pay in-network deductibles, copays and coinsurance amounts at these facilities.  BCBS members will receive a letter from BCBS this week with details regarding how this will work.

Family Practice Associates is and has always been an in-network provider. We thank you for entrusting us with your care!
