As of July 2016
Payment Notice: Medical Services
CrescentCare is required to collect all copays, deductibles, and sliding fee payments where applicable.
CrescentCare offers a sliding fee discount to patients whose incomes fall at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines. Each year the federal government establishes income levels that qualify patients to be eligible to pay reduced costs for services. Sliding fee means that costs change according to the patient’s income, lack of income, or ability to pay. Patients that qualify are eligible for a sliding discount on fees for all services provided at CrescentCare.
If you have insurance, we will charge you according to the guidelines of your insurance plan (for copays and deductibles). All labs will be billed directly to your insurance plan by the lab company. The lab company will then bill you directly for any outstanding balance. If you do not want to bill your insurance for services we can still see you. You will be considered self-pay and are responsible for your charges, including lab charges. Please ask our staff if you would like to work out a payment plan.
