In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the federal government declared a public health emergency (PHE) and passed a law that allowed you to automatically keep your Medicaid coverage (continuous Medicaid). Based on the new federal law, continuous Medicaid eligibility will end on March 31, 2023, so you need to renew your benefits when it’s time to ensure your coverage will continue if you are eligible.
Patients should look for notices from HHSC in YELLOW envelopes that say "ACTION REQUIRED" in RED lettering. Notices will come in the mail and/or via portal if clients chose electronic notices. They should respond quickly when they receive it.
If you don’t respond to renewal or information requests from HHS, you could lose your coverage.
Como respuesta a la pandemia de COVID-19, el gobierno federal declaró una Emergencia de Salud Pública (PHE, por sus siglas en inglés) y aprobó una ley que le permitió a usted mantener automáticamente su cobertura de Medicaid (cobertura continua de Medicaid). Según la nueva ley federal, la elegibilidad para la cobertura continua de Medicaid se terminará el 31 de marzo, de 2023, por eso necesita renovar sus beneficios cuando se llegue el momento para asegurar que su cobertura va a continuar si usted todavía es elegible.
Pacientes deben buscar avisos de la HHSC en sobres AMARILLOS con el texto “ACCIÓN REQUERIDA” en letras ROJAS. Los avisos llegarán por correo y/o a través del portal en línea si los clientes eligieron recibir avisos electrónicos. Deberían responder con rapidez cuando lo reciban.
Si no responde a las solicitudes de renovación o de información de la HHSC, podría perder su cobertura.
Austin Regional Clinic (ARC) doctors, staff, and leadership are committed to providing our community with high quality convenient care. One of the ways we demonstrate this priority is through our online transparency.
You can review our provider ratings and comments on our web site with the confidence that they are all based on verified visits. We post all patient feedback relevant to the entire visit and only refrain from posting comments that are libelous, profane, or those that risk the privacy of our patients.
The below guide provides details about how we collect and share our patient feedback.
ARC partnered with Binary Fountain to collect patient feedback about their doctor’s visit. We gather feedback from text surveys that are sent after the visit. Binary Fountain is an independent third party customer feedback company that provides the technology to collect the feedback and display ratings and comments on our web site. All ratings are submitted by actual patients and verified by ARC.
Patients for whom we have a mobile phone number receive a text survey within two hours of checking in for their visit. Patients are asked to complete the survey and provide ratings and comments regarding their experience at different touch points of their visit. We use this feedback to recognize doctors and staff, identify issues we can correct, and enhance our care.
ARC posts all positive and negative patient feedback that is relevant to the entire visit. We refrain from posting comments that are libelous, profane, or those that risk the privacy of our patients.
ARC asks questions that touch on the overall patient experience related to their visit. Anyone seeking detailed information about each question can view the ratings for each specific question on the Reviews tab on the provider bio page on the website. We calculate our provider star ratings based on the responses to question number six below. We calculate our location star ratings based on the responses to all the below questions.
Since more recent data provides a more accurate picture, we require a minimum of 30 patient surveys per doctor in the last 12 months before we post a physician’s rating.
ARC physicians and staff review all comments and act to rectify issues. Since the purpose of the feedback is to allow us to improve the overall patient experience, we display the last 90 days of comments which are the most relevant for the practice.
No. Only patients having an outpatient visit by an ARC physician receive a survey. The results are based entirely from patients who have actually been treated by the physician in our clinics.
Comments are reviewed and approved prior to being published to the website. If a comment contains any personally identifiable information, that information will be removed from the comment.

Medicine has allowed me to fulfill all my passions – science, education, and serving my community. Ob/Gyn offers the unique opportunity to develop a long-term partnership with my patients and care for them during all stages of their lives. I care for my patients as I would my own family members, listening to their concerns, understanding their values, and individualizing their care. Each patient has a unique set of concerns and goals, and no treatment option is right for everyone. I strive for patient autonomy, shared decision making and establishing trust. I also believe it is important to educate patients regarding their health and empower them so that they may play an active role in their own health care.

Rating based on "Did the healthcare provider or doctor provide the care you expected?"
It was a great visit from the moment of checkin til I left the lab. Everyone was friendly and helpful. Dr. Williamson is awesome.
This was my second time having to adjust my scheduled appointment the day of, due to additional testing needing to be done. Previously, I was provided information to schedule a follow up appointment, which I did. This morning, prior to my appointment, I was told I would have to come in earlier or reschedule due to needing an additional ultrasound (not something I was informed of prior). This was the second time this has happened. Notifying me the week or at least day before would be more considerate.
She was the best doctor I have seen in a long time. She listen to me she explained everything that she thought that was going on. I gave her 10 stars.
Dr Williamson and her team continue to be great. I loved how on time the clinic was and how nice the sonographer was with my Mom.
Great Customer Service. I liked the doctor. She had a lot of patience and explained everything in a way I could understand. Made me feel comfortable.
Dr McKenna was super helpful! She took the time to answer my questions and give me referrals for a few items they did not specialize in (pelvic floor therapy and doula recommendations). Very happy with my visit. Thank you!
