Services Provided by Howard Brown Health Primary Care Providers include:

Select a primary care provider at any of our clinic locations across Chicago. Once you have selected a primary care provider, please send the name and contact information of your provider to any outside specialists you see. This will assist your specialists in coordinating medical care with us.

We accept a variety of insurance plans, in addition to Medicare and Medicaid. All medical services are offered on a sliding-fee scale to those who are eligible. Don’t have insurance? Don’t worry. Visit our fee and insurance information page for information on how we can help.

We provide safe, timely, cost effective, equitable, and quality services to all individuals throughout the life span. Our clients are at the center of our mission and comprehensive health and wellness is our ultimate goal. Through a team of dedicated physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, physician assistants, case managers, behavioral health consultants, health educators, and other healthcare providers, Howard Brown offers everything you expect from a primary care provider and more. As a Patient Centered Medical Home, Howard Brown Health is committed to helping you stay healthy. We know that health is more than physical wellness; it also includes emotional and mental wellness.

Your Primary Care Provider (PCP) works closely with other members of your care team to help you consider how your body, mind and behavior impact your health. This is why one of the members of your care team is a Behavioral Health Consultant (BHC). Your PCP may ask a BHC to help you set goals that will help maintain and improve your health. A BHC does not offer traditional counseling or therapy. One of our BHC team members might meet with you once for 10-15 minutes or they may see you at the next few visits with your PCP to follow up on your goals. An example of a BHC visit may be for a person who has high blood pressure, diabetes or depression. Your PCP will give you information about the lifestyle changes recommended to improve your health; the BHC will help you decide how to work towards these changes.

At Howard Brown, we also have therapists (social workers and psychologists) who provide individual, group, couples and family therapy if you are interested in talking more in-depth about issues that relate to your health and well-being.

All medical services are offered on a sliding-fee scale to those who are eligible. Most major insurance plans are accepted.
