Your primary care physician is your partner in wellness who will guide you to specialty care when you need it. It’s all part of a coordinated, compassionate healthcare experience, with our network of physicians and clinicians throughout Northwest Florida and Southeast Alabama accepting most types of insurance, including Medicare. It’s a partnership in wellbeing, and it starts with you.

Bonifay Rural Health Clinic (BRHC) was established in 2020 to ensure the availability of quality medical services to all residents in Holmes County and surrounding areas. BRHC is based in Bonifay, Florida and currently provides primary and preventive health services to the residents of Holmes, Washington, Walton, Jackson, and surrounding counties.

BRHC is growing to better serve all area residents through additional services and sites in the upcoming year. BRHC’s commitment to provide high quality health services to all residents of Northwest Florida is unwavering.

BRHC is based on a private practice model but sees patients without regard to their ability to pay. BRHC provides the highest standard of care and is accredited through the Joint Commission.

Bonifay Rural Health Clinic Is Now Accepting Medicaid Insurance

At Bonifay Rural Health Clinic, we are now accepting Medicaid. Patients and their urgent care needs are our only priority, and that is why we offer a wide variety of insurance and payment options to our patients. Along with Medicaid, we also accept Medicare, Staywell, and most major private insurance plans. To see if your insurance is on the list, click here.

While we make every attempt to provide accurate insurance and payment information to our patients, if you have specific questions about your insurance coverage, it is best to contact your provider directly. Bonifay Rural Health Clinic wants all of our patients to receive the highest quality of care when they visit our facility, without having to worry about insurance coverages.

Bonifay Rural Health Clinic is constantly evolving to serve the needs of our patients and the communities we serve. Accepting Medicaid is another step in that process, and we are proud to be able to provide the highest quality of urgent care available in the Panhandle. Comprehensive urgent care is now and will continue to be our priority.
