Patient / Insurance Responsibility
Insurance & billing
As your primary care provider, please remember that our relationship is with you and not your insurance company. The benefits of your health coverage is an agreed contract between you and your insurance carrier. For additional information on what services will be covered, please contact your insurance company. While we have a great understanding of most insurance providers and coverage, we encourage you to be familiar with the exact benefits and limitations. Ultimately, we advise you always to refer to your insurance carrier directly.
Co-Pays & deductibles
Co-pays, co-insurance and deductibles are due at the time of your services. These payment amounts are generally between $36.00 to $60.00, depending on the type of coverage you have and the type of services we are providing. Co-insurance is a percentage-based payment that you are responsible for after your deductible has been satisfied. Deductibles are simply the amounts that you must pay out of pocket before your insurance carrier will begin covering additional medical expenses. You must pay these deductibles before general benefits of the insurance policy can apply. For deductible amounts, co-payment details and co-insurance information please contact your insurance provider directly.
Lifespan is committed to providing the high quality, affordable medical services to all patients regardless of whether or not they are insured. If you are not covered directly by an insurance provider, we offer discounts for many income levels and backgrounds. Uninsured patients are encouraged to complete the Sliding Scale application.
We understand that sometimes you need a helping hand. We offer options to assist you when you are having difficulty meeting financial obligations. Our Patient Account Representatives are here to offer you and your family flexible payment options.

Sliding Scale Information
You may qualify to pay a reduced price for some services and treatments at our health centers. The exact amount you pay depends on your income and family size. This is the Sliding Scale. Once you qualify for the Sliding Scale, you can use it for 12 months. If your income or family size changes during those 12 months, you must let us know.
Example of Sliding Scale Costs
If your income is between $0 and $12,880 and you live alone, you would qualify for our nominal fee of $36. If it is between $12,880 and $17,130, then you would qualify for a nominal fee of $48, etc.
