Our Affiliate System

We are building one organization with affiliates in two regions. Our parent company, now known as Prisma Health, supports both affiliates with overall direction and leadership as we continue to align. We will soon share one brand across the entire organization to better reflect this. The rebranded Palmetto Health-USC Medical Group will continue to operate as a joint venture between the Midlands affiliate and the USC School of Medicine.

We are becoming Prisma Health in early 2019

Team-based Care

A doctor/nurse team will care for you. We believe this approach enhances care because the team becomes familiar with both your medical conditions and you as a person.

Based on your care plan, our team will coordinate services provided in the office. These professionals and programs include …

  • Access to specialty clinics
  • Anti-coagulation (blood thinner) services

Insurance and Payment Policy 

Our office visits are billed to your insurance provider as an outpatient facility for GHS. As a result, you may see two bills, one from University Medical Group for the professional fee and one from GHS for the facility bill.

Medicare and Medicaid have provisions in their billing structure to allow payment of these professional charges. Many private insurance payers do not. If you have questions about whether your private insurance would cover your visit to our office, please contact your insurance company for guidance on your coverage.

We will file your insurance for you. You will need to pay insurance co-payments and other money owed at the time of service, unless previous payment arrangements have been made. All co-payments are expected during check-in. We accept credit cards, checks and cash

Your visit with the provider will go better if you …

  • Write down and bring a list of questions
  • Bring a list of all doctors you see and their contact information
  • Ask for help in creating and sharing a complete record of your care
  • Bring all medicines (prescriptions and over-the counter) that you take

Missed appointments. If you realize at any time that you cannot keep an appointment, please call our office.

After hours. For all medical emergencies, please call 911. The practice provides extended hours nights and weekends, as needed. Patients also have access to an after-hours nurse triage system for events that occur outside of office hours. This service will answer medical questions to determine the level of urgency for follow-up.

Nurse Visits

To see the nurse for shots (including for birth control), blood pressure checks or weight checks, please make an appointment.
