Payment Options

At Neighborhood HealthSource, it’s our mission to make sure everyone has access to high-quality, affordable medical care. We accept most private insurance plans, as well as public insurance such as Medical Assistance/Medicaid/Medicare. We also serve patients without insurance.

We know that navigating payment options can be challenging. NHS has on-site Patient Access Coordinators (PACs), who are available for FREE in-person or virtual appointments to help patients apply for insurance programs or our sliding fee scale. Call 612-588-9411 to schedule an appointment with a PAC today!

For patients without insurance (uninsured) or who cannot afford their deductibles or copays (under-insured), we offer our services on a sliding fee scale based on income and family size. As a Federally Qualified Health Center, we are required to offer our services on a sliding fee scale to make them affordable for everyone. We strongly encourage that patients without insurance apply for the sliding fee scale. If you are eligible, your cost of care will be significantly lower.

Sliding Fee Scale

We believe everyone has a right to great healthcare, and ability to pay shouldn’t keep patients from getting the care they need. That’s why Neighborhood HealthSource has a sliding fee scale, based on income, to make our services accessible to all.

How it works:
How to apply:

Our front desk staff is happy to help you apply for the sliding fee scale during your visit to the clinic. If you plan on applying, please make sure to bring one of the following documents to your appointment as proof of income for your household:

  • All pay stubs from the last 30 days
  • A printout of unemployment payments 
  • A copy of your most recent income tax form
  • Last year’s IRS W2 forms from each employer

Your household income is used to determine what your flat fee for services will be. Please bring proof of income documentation for all members of the household.

You can also fill out the application form online before you come in for your appointment. To fill the application electronically, visit our forms page.

Need help?

We have Patient Access Coordinators (PACs) to help you apply for the sliding fee scale. To schedule an appointment with a PAC, please call our main line at (612) 588-9411. When you meet with a PAC, make sure to bring one of the proof-of-income documents listed above.  If you do not have one of those items, you may still be eligible for the sliding fee scale, and a PAC can help determine your next steps.

Payment Policy

Note: If a patient has an account balance of over $300 and is experiencing an urgent condition, or is a pregnant mother, they will be seen for treatment regardless of their account balance.

For patients using health insurance, co-pays are due at the time of visit.
