No, we see only children from birth until age 19 with Medicaid or North Carolina Health Choice coverage in our Dental Clinic.
Yes, beginning September 1st, 2015 Caldwell County Health Department will require all clients presenting for service to provide proof of income. Income will be assessed annually unless there is a change in financial status. Clients will be asked at each visit if there has been a change in financial status/number in the household.
Clients who have met the income criteria for the following programs (i.e., Medicaid, WIC, Food and Nutrition Services (FNS) Program (Food Stamps), and / or the Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) Program) will only be required to show documentation of current eligibility and no additional income screening will be necessary.
No client will be refused services when presenting for care based on lack of documentation, however, each client will be billed at 100% until proof of income and family size is provided to the agency.
We do see individuals with no Medicaid or insurance. Those individuals are placed on a sliding fee scale based on our fees. Those fees can be found on our Administration Page. The sliding fee scale means that, based on the person's income and family size, they may be responsible for anywhere between 100% to 0% of their bill. We would recommend those with no insurance or Medicaid to also look into the free clinic, Helping Hands. Depending on your healthcare needs, they may be a better option.
Pregnancy tests are offered every day of the week by appointment only. Call 828-426-8400 to schedule an appointment.
