Discount Fee Policy
It is the policy of Hemant Patel MD PC to provide essential medical services regardless of the patient’s ability to pay. Discounts are offered based upon household income and size. A sliding fee schedule is used to calculate the basic discount and is updated each year using the federal poverty guidelines. Once approved, the discount will be honored for a year, after which the patient must reapply. However, regardless of patient being approved or denied the discount, the patient is obligated to pay the nominal fees that would be informed to the patient by the provider at the end of the visit. This fee is based on the financial condition of the patient.
Discount Application Process
A completed application including required documentation of the home address, household income, and insurance coverage must be on file and approved by the business office before a discount will be granted. If the applicant appears to be eligible for Medicaid, a written denial of coverage by Medicaid may also be required. Adolescent patients seeking confidential care are exempt from the application process, and services are provided at the nominal rate.
