How to Receive District Cares Benefits
A patient should first call to schedule an appointment to see a primary care provider. During the call to schedule an appointment, the Clinic registration team will begin the District Cares specialty benefit qualification process. The patient will be provided with a list of items to bring to their first visit so they can complete their registration process. Some of the information patients will be asked to provide include proof of Palm Beach County residency, personal identification, and information income.
To make an appointment at the Primary Care Clinic, the patient should call 561-642-1000.
Once a patient schedules an appointment with the C.L. Brumback Primary Care Clinic they will establish their medical home. Their primary care physician will coordinate comprehensive patient treatment with a team of care providers based on a patient’s individual medical needs. Care will move seamlessly as needed between primary care physicians, medical specialists, hospitals and other services.
