Patients, help us protect our high-risk patients - please wear a mask if you have respiratory symptoms, a positive COVID-19 test, or COVID-19 exposure.

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.

Please see below for physicians he recommends to new patients wanting to establish care at ARC. Read letter.
Dr. Meigs enjoys spending his free time with his wife and three children.
Dr. Meigs performs some procedures using the da Vinci ® surgical system.
I enjoy the diverse challenges inherent in delivering comprehensive ENT care to adults and children. I am especially interested in nasal and sinus surgery, head and neck cancer surgery, and thyroid surgery. My goal is to try to treat each patient as I would one of my own family.
Sleep apnea is a serious, potentially life-threatening condition. Treatment may include oxygen, behavioral changes, surgery, therapy, or the use of a CPAP machine.
Balloon sinuplasty is minimally invasive and effective at relieving symptoms of chronic sinusitis. ENT doctors can open up blocked sinus passageways and drain mucus buildup in patients suffering from chronic sinusitis symptoms by using a flexible balloon catheter.
ARC offers minimally invasive surgical care using one of the most advanced and sophisticated tools, the da Vinci® Surgical System. The da Vinci® Surgical System is a tool that utilizes advanced, robotic technologies to assist your surgeon with your operation. It does not act on its own and its movements are controlled by your surgeon.
Our ENT specialists can help treat your voice problems through consultation, medicine, or surgery (if necessary).
Ear surgery, or otoplasty, can correct deformities and improve the shape, position, and proportion of the ear.
Frenulum clipping is the procedure in which the lingual frenulum is cut. It is done when the frenulum seems unusually short or tight.

ARC offers telemedicine visits for primary and specialty care. Doctors can quickly evaluate you for a new health issue or follow up with you via a phone call or video visit from the comfort of your home.
Thyroid and parathyroid surgery can help regulate the body's metabolism. Surgery aims to help alleviate disease and cancer symptoms and remove tumors.
Tonsillectomies and adenoidectomies are surgeries to have the tonsils and adenoids removed. Often the tonsils and adenoids are removed at the same time. But sometimes, only one or the other is removed.
Ultrasounds can be used to assess head and neck disorders.
ARC ENT providers offer diagnosis and treatment for voice disorders.
Rating based on "Did the healthcare provider or doctor provide the care you expected?"
Wait to long
I appreciate the prompt check in and how my doctor granted me his time and attention with my inquiries.
Felt like he did not care about my health problems. Seemed like I was bothering him. Left with no diagnosis nor constructive plan.
Was brought into the exam room ahead of my scheduled time!!!
Waited a bit long to see him, but glad he didn’t rush when seeing me.
It’s all good.
"It is believed that 2 to 3% of children have sleep apnea," says Dr. Matthew M. Meigs, ENT. See the causes and risks.
