Income Verification/Sliding Fee DiscountAll patients registering for services with Health Care Partners of South Carolina who desire a sliding fee discount are required to provide proof of household income. Verification of income is necessary once a year and anytime there is a change in your household’s income level or size. Documentation that is incomplete or misrepresents the household’s potential earnings will not be accepted as proof of income. Patients that do not desire a discount are not required to present proof of income. Failure to provide proof of income disqualifies the patient from receiving discounted services.
- Acceptable Forms of Income Verification:
- Two most recent pay stubs
- Most recent tax return
- Social Security/updated disability statement for the past and current month
- Retirement statement for the past and current month
- Unemployment statement for the past and current month
What makes Health Care Partners of South Carolina different from other doctors' offices?An FQHC functions like any other primary care office in many ways: We employ skilled, licensed physicians and nurse practitioners to provide primary and preventive health care to patients of all ages.
What sets us apart, however, is our commitment to being a safety net for the community, regardless of insurance status or ability to pay. We accept all forms of insurance including Medicaid and Medicare. We also work closely with patients who lack adequate health insurance to help them qualify for our sliding fee discount program.
