To ensure that care is affordable for all patients, Sam Rodgers offers a sliding fee discount program. Any patient, whether insured or uninsured, may apply for the sliding fee discount program as outlined by the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services.
Fees for services will be based on your household income and family size. Charges may be reduced if you live on a limited income according to federal guidelines. We collect annual household income and family size information to determine eligibility for a sliding fee discount. Charges for services that are not covered by insurance may be eligible for a sliding fee discount.
In order to qualify for the sliding fee discount program, patients must complete the sliding fee discount program application and provide the appropriate proof of income.
Acceptable proofs of income are as follows:
Patients will also need to bring the following:
Patients will not receive the sliding fee discount until they have completed their sliding fee paperwork and have been approved by a Sam Rodgers employee. Enrollment must be renewed annually.
We send monthly billing statements. You may pay by cash, check, credit card, or through your insurance. Our billing team is available to discuss your payment options and questions.
