It is the policy of Canby HealthCare Clinic to provide essential medical services regardless of the patient’s ability to pay. Discounts are offered based upon household income and size. A sliding fee schedule is used to calculate the basic discount and is updated each year using the Federal poverty guidelines. Once approved, the discount will be honored for 6 months, after which the patient must reapply.
A completed application including required documentation of the home address, household income, and any insurance coverage must be on file and approved by the business office before a discount will be granted. If the applicant appears to be eligible for Medicaid, a written denial of coverage by Medicaid may also be required.
