March Ask

Q: Is my family allowed to use the on-site Health Center?

Absolutely! Health Centers, located at most Alliance Coal locations, are available for employees and their family members. Some Health Centers feature a doctor or nurse, and others are staffed by a nurse practitioner (NP) who is fully licensed and qualified to provide similar services as a family doctor. From checkups and routine health care to treatment of injuries and chronic illnesses, the on-site Health Center is available for your whole family — with no office-visit copay!

Our services include:

  • Annual HealthCheck for employees and spouses
  • Physical exams and wellness care (including pap tests, sports/school exams, some immunizations, and screenings)
  • Primary care for families and children
  • Diagnosis and treatment of long-term health conditions
  • Writing prescriptions and dispensing certain over-the-counter medications
  • Coordination with hospitals and specialists
