Price Transparency

Summit Community Care Clinic is committed to providing transparent pricing so patients can make informed decisions. Please use the estimated pricing as a guide but understand that costs may vary. Regardless, if you are uninsured or under-insured, you will not be denied care unless you have pending delinquent bills for previous services.

We cannot guarantee the accuracy of the pricing provided on the website. A final bill for services may be different. Summit Community Care Clinic is not liable for cost in service differences.

Payments listed are estimated gross charges – the full price before any insurance or sliding fee scales are applied. Whereas prices are the same for all patients, final charges will vary depending on negotiated health insurance provider costs, individual insurance plans, and patient’s benefit plan.

Cost of common procedures

Patients without health insurance

Fees are accrued based on the care received. Summit Community Care Clinic will do its best to provide you with an estimate of cost. You are required to pay the entire bill at the end of each visit. If needed, we are willing to offer a payment plan.

 

Sliding Fee Scale

During the new patient eligibility process, you may be assigned a Fee Code on the Sliding Fee Scale based on your income and family size, according to a calculation based on current Federal Poverty Guidelines. The discounted fees cover many services except for certain laboratory services from outside the Care Clinic. Medications are assigned a fee based on cost to the Care Clinic. If you receive services that are not covered, you will be informed that the service is not covered and of the cost, and then will be expected to pay the non-coverage charge.

Sliding scale fee codes

Medicaid or CHP+

Any copays or fees required by Medicaid or CHP+ will be collected at the time of service. If you receive services that are not covered, you will be informed that the service is not covered and of the charge, and then will be expected to pay the non-coverage charge.

Medicare

Any copays or fees required by Medicare will be collected at the time of service. Your signed acknowledgement of an Advance Patient Notice (APN) is required, confirming that you will pay for all services not covered by Medicare. If you receive services that are not covered, you will be informed that these service are not covered and of the charge, and then will be expected to pay the non-coverage charge.


For Patients with Private Insurance

Copays are collected at the time of service. We will submit your claim to your insurance company. You will receive a bill statement for any remaining fees not covered by insurance. Settlement of your bill is required within 30 days of the statement. If you receive services that are not covered, you will be informed that the service is not covered and of the cost, and then will be expected to pay the non-coverage charge.

No patient will be denied service due to inability to pay.
