Payment Options & Information
Good Faith Estimate
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost. A Good Faith Estimate is the total expected cost of any non-emergency health care items or services and includes related costs (e.g., medical and laboratory tests, prescription drugs, and equipment).
Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who do not have health insurance or who are not using health insurance an estimate of their bill for health care items and services before those items or services are provided. For appointments scheduled three days in advance, patients will receive a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least one business day before your medical service or item.
If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
Make sure you save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
Good Faith Estimates are available to all patients upon request.
Sliding Fee Discount Program
The Sliding Fee Discount Program allows us to reduce or “slide” the fees for the care (Medical, Behavioral Health, and Dentistry) you or your family receive at United Family Medicine.
If your income is low, you can receive the quality health care you need at our clinic. We can help you with our Sliding Fee Discount Program.
This Program is available to all patients of United Family Medicine who qualify. To see if you qualify, we will consider the size of your family and your income. We will then determine your discount based on a discount schedule of federal poverty income guidelines.
