Community clinic receives federal grant; will apply sliding fee scale

(Continued)

The clinic is preparing to move into a larger building at 416 W. Camp St., next to its existing facility at 404 W. Camp St. Transferring equipment will begin Oct. 31 and last through Nov. 3, she said.

“I think we’re going to see some patients on that Saturday, to see how the system works,” McQuade-Jones said.

An open house is planned for 4-7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 6, at the new location.

Another financial benefit will allow the clinic to adjust the fees it charges clients. The Boone County Council authorized — pending final approval by the Indiana Department of Local Government Finance — $50,000 for the clinic’s 2014 budget.

Before the council’s contribution, the clinic had offered a sliding scale only to patients visiting the clinic between 5 and 8 p.m. Now that scale is available for patient appointments during all hours, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, and 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, McQuade-Jones said.

“That sliding scale is dictated by the state, based on federal poverty guidelines,” she said. Generally, the charge is between $30 and $50. “People can qualify for additional discounts, depending on their income.

“If people are unable to pay their fees, there are payment arrangements,” McQuade-Jones said. “They just need to set it up with our office manager, Amanda Dickey, at adickey@co.boone.in.us or 765-482-4442.”

The sliding scale is available to uninsured Boone County residents; proof of residency and income are required. A flat rate is charged uninsured patients who live outside Boone County.

Patients with insurance who have a co-pay must present an insurance card; co-payments are collected at the appointment. Payment may be made by cash, check, credit or debit card.

Insured patients who have no co-pay are also required to bring their current insurance card for verification.
