What to Bring on Your First Visit
Blount Rural Health Center operates on a Sliding Fee Scale. Discounts are offered depending upon family income and size. A sliding fee schedule is used to calculate the basic discount and is updated each year using federal poverty guidelines. A copy of previous year income tax or check stubs must accompany the application. The only parties that can be claimed on the application are family members claimed on the Federal Income Tax Report. A minimum sliding fee copay of $40 will be paid at the time services are rendered. Once approved, the discount will be honored for one year, after which you must reapply. You are also instructed to reapply if any change in income occurs. A completed application including required documentation must be on file and approved by the office manager or designated staff member before a discount will be granted. The discount is applied to office visits supplied by clinic providers. The discount is NOT applied to in-office laboratory services, reference laboratory tests and consulting diagnostic interpretations. The discount is NOT applied to out-of-office referred care.
