Patients First Philosophy
The employees of Carolina Family Health Centers, Inc. commit to providing for the needs, both spoken and perceived, of current and potential patients as we fulfill the “Patients First” promise.
Patients First Promise
Carolina Family Health Centers, Inc. is a Federally Qualified Community Health Center working to enhance the health of individuals and families by improving access to quality healthcare services. While maintaining a commitment to the underserved, CFHC offers a comprehensive scope of medical, dental and behavioral health services to a wide range of patients – including those with Medicare, Medicaid and most private insurance plans.
Discounted charges are available to qualified patients. Eligibility for sliding fee discounts is based on household income and the number of family members supported by that income. Federal Regulations require that the patient show proof of income. CFHC defines proof of income as follows:
2 current pay stubs (if employed)
Most recent tax year 1040 (if self-employed)
Letter from Employment Security Commission (if drawing unemployment)
Letter from employer, preferably on letterhead, stating salary/wages (domestic worker)
Medicaid Denial (if potentially qualified)
Dental patients are required to bring a nominal charge of $50.00 to their dental appointment. Patients who are at or below 100% of the federal poverty level are expected to pay a nominal fee of $20.00 for medical appointments.
