Frequently Asked Questions (FAQS)

I have insurance; how do I know who/what is covered; how much do I have to pay?

  • On the back of your issued insurance card you will find a website address as well as a toll free phone number. By calling the number on the back of your insurance card, you will be able to speak with a case manager who can assist you in understanding what services are covered and what your co-pay and deductible will be. They can also assist in referring you to providers within your community.

I don’t have insurance OR my deductible is too high to meet. What can I do?

  • Many agencies/providers offer low-cost (sliding scale fee) services and, sometimes, free (pro-bono) services. The best way to find out is to call and inquire if an agency/provider offers these services. Many times you will only need to complete a small application to receive a reduced fee/pro-bono services.
