What is Health Wheels?
The Motion Picture & Television Fund knows the unique demands of a career in the entertainment industry. Many necessities are sacrificed due to long hours or the inability to get away, including seeking medical care. Health Wheels is a new program that brings healthcare delivery directly to patients where they work. Health Wheels is a 33-foot fully functional and professional mobile health center with two comfortably-sized, well-equipped private examination rooms and is staffed with a doctor, a licensed vocational nurse and a driver/patient registrar.
Mobile Health Care
Health Wheels provides free screenings and health services. Through this program MPTF will provide easy and affordable access to routine and preventative health care for those who are otherwise deferring preventative services, or attention to chronic problems, due to time or transportation constraints. Health Wheels offers affordable comprehensive primary care for patients 13 years of age and above. Services include: physical exams, "welcome to Medicare" visits, Well-Woman exams, EKG's, flu shots and other immunizations, blood pressure checks, cholesterol and glucose screenings, vision and hearing checks.
What Insurance is Accepted at Health Wheels?
Health Wheels is just like the other seven MPTF brick-and-mortar medical center locations throughout Southern California... it's just on wheels! And just like the other MPTF health center locations, many insurance plans are accepted. Anyone who works in the entertainment industry is eligible for services, NOT just those covered by the Motion Picture Industry Health Plan (MPI). If you are enrolled in the Fox Health Plan (UHC PPO), services at Health Wheels are reimbursable but may be out-of-network. However, you cannot use Kaiser or Aetna HMO coverage at Health Wheels. MPTF will verify individual insurance coverage at the time your Health Wheels appointment is made.
