Finance and Billing


StayWell Health is committed to providing quality health care and service to all patients. In order to continue this mission, it is essential that payment be received at the time of service. We will submit claims to any insurance company according to established billing guidelines. To do this in an efficient manner it is important that patients provide their insurance information at the time of service. We accept Medicare, Medicaid, Husky and Private insurance. Patient and/or the responsible party will receive a monthly statement which explains any activity occurring since the last service.

To assist patients in meeting their financial obligations, StayWell Health provides the following programs:

CREDIT CARDS/CHECKS/CASH

We will honor Debit, Visa, MasterCard  for payment of services. These payments will be accepted either by person, by phone or by mail. Personal checks and money orders are also accepted.

SLIDING FEE SCALE PROGRAM

StayWell Health offers a Sliding Fee Scale Program for patients who do not have insurance or whose income is insufficient to pay outstanding balances. The amount of the sliding fee discount is based on your family size, income, and determined using the Federal Poverty Level established income guidelines. Patient must cooperate in completing an application for sliding fee program and providing income verification, (last 2 paystubs, copy of entitlement checks, W2, etc.).

ENTITLEMENTS

StayWell Health has an Outreach Department that will assist you in applying for third party assistance such as: Medicaid and Husky A, B, C and D. Please ask our Front Office Receptionist for information.

PAYMENT ARRANGEMENTS

If you do not qualify for a discount, we will offer you the option to establish payment arrangements to pay any outstanding balance, in a reasonable period of time, based on your financial circumstances. Patients will not be turned away for their inability to pay. We will make every effort to work with you.
