It is the policy of Monroe County Health Center to maintain sound financial practices that ensure the continued financial viability of the health center.
All patients will be asked to sign a Statement of Patient Financial Responsibility indicating their understanding of obligation to pay their amounts due.
Copayments and nominal charges are expected at time of service for all insurance carriers as well as Sliding Fee Scale patients.
If a patient has met their deductible or states they do not have a deductible, then insurance will be billed and any remainder due from the patient will be sent by statement. Statements are mailed on a monthly basis.
Acceptable forms of payment are cash, check, money order, credit card and debit card payments. Monroe Health Center currently accepts Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover credit cards only.
The Front Office Coordinators, CFO and Billing Supervisor are responsible for the oversight and implementation of the Financial Policy.
