Billing & Financial Assistance
Insurance Patients: The clinic accepts private insurance including Medicare and Medicaid. The patient is responsible for checking with their insurance plan if their plan covers evaluations and treatment at our clinic, including getting prior authorization if the need be. Medicare and Medicaid patients must have a physician referral in order for the clinic to bill your insurance. If you do not have a physician referral, you will be responsible for the billed charges if they are denied by your insurance company. Insurance patients will receive a statement after the insurance has processed the claim
Cash Pay Patients: Patients without insurance selecting the cash pay program may also be eligible for a sliding fee scale based upon their annual income. In order to be eligible, patients must apply for a sliding fee scale by completing a Fee Assistance Form. Please email Ms. Freda Buck, Clinic Site Coordinator firstname.lastname@example.org /423-439-4355.
