Lincoln Community Health Center (LCHC) and Lincoln County Health and Human Services (LCHHS) believes that no one should go without care because they fear the cost. In addition to providing high quality care for the lowest possible cost, we have charitable assistance programs and billing policies that help patients focus on getting well rather than worrying about how they will pay for care.
Financial Assistance for Patients
At Lincoln Community Health Center, medically necessary and generally available healthcare services are accessible to residents in the communities we serve, regardless of ability to pay. Financial assistance is available for qualifying patients.
If you don't have insurance, or if you need help in paying for care, please contact the clinic and ask to speak with a Financial Counselor about our Financial Assistance Program:
Who qualifies for the Financial Assistance Program?
Uninsured patients may automatically qualify for a discount, and all patients who have difficulty paying for care can receive financial assistance on a sliding scale, based on income and personal circumstances. Provision can also be made for some patients who experience catastrophic healthcare events.
To apply for financial assistance, please complete the Financial Assistance Application and give the form, along with the appropriate documentation, to a Financial Counselor, or any employee at the facility where you received, or will receive, care. You may also mail a completed form to the facility were services were, or will be, provided.
Income documentation includes one or more of the following:
1. Current payroll or check stub
2. Award letter
3. Court documents
4. Tax returns and/or a current commissions statement
If the above documentation can not be provided, please contact LCHC.
After patients provide information about household income, household size, expenses, and other personal circumstances, a cost of care compatible with the patient's ability to pay is determined. Get answers to questions about financial assistance by using our secure online form.
