Lab tests that are processed at the health center include blood sugar, hemoglobin, hemoglobin A1C, urine pregnancy, urinalysis, and rapid strep. More complicated tests are sent out to a laboratory. Some tests can take several days, and Pap smears may take up to 10 days to process.
Sliding Fee Discount
A sliding fee is offered for those who qualify. Based on your family size and income, you may qualify for a discount of 60 to 90 percent of fees charged for medical services, 30 to 50 percent on covered dental services and 25 to 35 percent on laboratory services. Some minimal charges to the patient apply at each visit. This discount applies to almost all services, but there are a few exceptions. Insurance carriers are billed first; then the discount applies to any remaining balance.
If you are interested, print out the application now, complete it, and mail or bring it in prior to your appointment. You must provide proof of income to be considered. The information is confidential. Those who receive the discount are required to reapply one year afterward or whenever changes occur in income or family size.
Patient Medication Assistance Program
Medication Assistance is a program for our patients in coordination with Pharmaceutical companies that help to provide patients with available medications at no cost to them. Medications are limited to pharmaceutical programs availability and income guidelines. Please inquire at your appointment.
340b Pharmacy Program
340b Pharmacy is a federal program that requires drug manufacturers to provide outpatient drugs to eligible health care centers. HAHC has teamed up with Fisher's Pharmacy in Bedford, PA, Potomac Valley Pharmacy in Hyndman, PA & Potomac Valley Pharmacy in Cumberland, MD to offer the pharmacy program for our patients. For self-pay and sliding fee patients this program can greatly reduce the cost of prescribed medications. Patients with Medical Assistance do not qualify. Please inquire at your appointment for more information.
