Cabin Creek Health Systems offers a sliding fee discount program. The sliding fee discounts are available to patients who are unable to pay because they are uninsured and they meet the household income/size guidelines. The discounts are also available to patients who are insured who meet these income guidelines. In the case of insured patients, the sliding fee payment levels are for the portion of the allowed service charge not covered by the insurer and for which the patient would normally be responsible. Once approved for sliding fee, coverage is valid for one year. Patients must re-certify every year to maintain coverage.
Patient household income determines the level of sliding fee discount. The levels of sliding fee discounts are summarized on following Table A below. These levels are used to determine the level of discounts provided for medical and dental services, for prescription medications provided at CCHS pharmacies and for pulmonary rehabilitation services. Reference laboratory tests patient fees are waived by the reference lab for patients whose income meet the eligibility guidelines.
Medical services include: clinic visits and behavioral health services. Dental services include: most emergency diagnostic, preventative, and basic restorative services (examinations, restorations, extractions, x-rays, posterior composites). Does not apply to fixed/removable prosthodontic services (crowns, bridge and denture services, periodontal therapy, and cosmetic procedures).
