Billing/Insurance/Payment Programs & Services
First Choice Health Centers is proud to provide excellent, quality care for our patients despite their financial situation. Patients will never be turned away based on their ability to pay. We accept Medicaid, Medicare and most major commercial insurances, as well as offer a sliding-fee discount program for income eligible patients at or below 200% of Federal Poverty Guidelines, regardless of insurance status.
The Center offers a sliding fee discount program for uninsured patients.
A patient must provide proof of their income at time of visit in order to be eligible for the program. The amount of the discount will be based on the patient’s family size and income. The Federal Poverty Guidelines and the Sliding Fee Discount Schedule determines the patient’s discount.
What do expect when using the Sliding Fee Discount Program:
When you call to make an appointment you will be asked to bring:
- Your insurance card
- At least a $20 payment
- Proof of income (W-2’s, Individual Tax Return 1040, copy of unemployment checks, last 2 paystubs). The proof you supply will be used to calculate your discount.
Accepted forms of Payment:
- Debit & Credit Cards
- American Express
- Personal checks
- Money Orders
The Center offers you the option to set-up payment arrangements to pay any outstanding balance, in a reasonable time period. The Center can also arrange a payment plan through an ACH (Automated Clearing House) in which payment will be withdrawn on a select day of the month until your balance is paid off.
