Sliding Fee Scale Policy Summary:
As a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC), Goshen Medical Center, Inc. is required to provide a sliding fee scale discount to patients who meet the eligibility guidelines. Sliding fee scale patients are those with household incomes that fall at 100% and below poverty up to 200% of federal poverty. The eligibility requirements are based on the federal poverty guidelines published annually by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
The sliding fee scale discounts can range from 20% to 100% off of the charges for the date of service. If the patient is able to demonstrate that total household size and income results in 100% discount, there is however a nominal fee of $25 for medical services. If the patient is verifiably homeless, presently a resident of a homeless shelter, transitional, doubling up or truly living on the street, then they are only required to pay $1.00 for services at any of our locations.
Since this is a sliding fee scale clinic, we have provided the Federal Poverty Guidelines below. Visit the Goshen Medical Center - Cape Fear website listed above to see what the level is needed for free care.
Federal Poverty Guidelines for 2021
|Persons In Family Household
||Poverty Guideline Salary per year
For Households with more than 8 persons, add $4,480 for each additional person.
*Alaska and Hawaii have different rates for HUD federal poverty guidelines.
These numbers above represent 100% of the Federal Poverty Rate. In order to get reduced or free services from some clinics, they use a sliding fee scale based on your income.
When they use a sliding fee scale, the 100% rate can be different than 100%. In those cases, using for example a 200% federal poverty level, you will only need double the 100% number listed above to 200%.
