How does Crusader Community Health’s sliding discount work?
As a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC), Crusader Community Health offers discounts based on federally established guidelines. You may be eligible for a discount program if you are not covered by an insurance plan or have limited coverage.
Discounts are based upon family size and income. Proof of income is required to be considered for a discount. Discount levels are 25%, 50%, 75% and 100% on eligible services. There is a minimum $20 fee due per medical visit and a minimum $30 fee due per dental, optical, or podiatry visit at the time of service regardless of discount. Discount eligibility is re-evaluated annually or sooner if your financial situation changes.
Patients may be assessed to determine eligibility for third-party coverages including Medicaid, Illinois Health Connect, Medicare and other coverages. Crusader provides assistance in completing entitlement applications on a case-by-case basis.
If you are covered by a discount program, most laboratory and x-ray services ordered and processed at Crusader are eligible for discounts. Laboratory and x-ray services for patients with third-party coverage are billed directly by Crusader contracted service providers.
