ReGenesis Health Care is committed to providing affordable quality care to all people regardless of the ability to pay. At ReGenesis, we’re focused on the care of our patients before anything else. That’s why we offer payment options that work for everyone, including the insured, underinsured, and uninsured individuals.

Dedication to exceptional care at a rate that’s affordable is the core of our facility’s values. That’s why we accept most commercial insurance plans and we offer discount programs that makes health care affordable for all. Our office is committed to helping you maximize your insurance benefits. Because insurance policies vary, we can only estimate your coverage in good faith but cannot guarantee coverage due to the complexities of insurance contracts. Your estimated patient portion must be paid at the time of service. As a service to our patients, we will bill insurance companies for services. If you have any questions, our courteous staff is always available to answer them.

To ensure access to care, RHC provides services at a discounted (sliding fee) rate to patients whose total household income falls within certain parameters of the Federal Poverty Guidelines (FPG) as published by the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).  Our patients are able to apply for these discounted services based on family size and income that will qualify them to only pay a nominal fee for all services, including the pharmacy. In order to qualify for this program you will be asked to provide proof of income for each person living in your household. Proof of income may include a current tax return or recent pay stubs. If you’re unemployed, please bring in your last statement from the Unemployment/Employment Security Office or the Social Security Administration. Our staff can help you determine the best proof of income for your situation.  Any patient desiring to apply for health insurance can visit to review their options.

We accept a majority of insurance plans from providers like veterans’ and military insurance, commercial insurance carriers, and Medicare/Medicaid. We file claims on behalf of all patients as a courtesy. Financial responsibility rests with the patient, so make sure that the information we have is always current.
