Insurance

Is Agape Health Services a Health Center that offers “free” services?

Agape is not a “free” health center. However, we do offer programs that allow services to be rendered at reduced costs should a person qualify. Please read on for more.

What types of insurance do you accept?

We accept commercial insurances (such as BlueCross BlueShield, United Healthcare as well as others), Health Maintenance Organizations (HMOs), Preferred Provider Organization (PPOs) as well as Medicare and Medicaid.

Can you assist in applying for insurance or other types of health coverages?

Yes! We can assist in applying for Medicaid benefits as well as coverages such as the Affordable Care Act. We ask that you bring in proof of identification, proof of income, and information on your family size.

What information will be needed when I arrive at a healthcare location?

We ask that you bring in proof of identification and your insurance card. If you do not have your insurance card, please bring in your social security card along with your proof of identification so that we may look you up.

What if I do not have any insurance?

Agape Health Services is proud to be a Federally Qualified Health Center! This means we offer a Sliding Fee Scale Program that reduces fees on services for qualified patients.

What is a Sliding Fee Program?

AHS offers a program that reduces fees charged to uninsured patients based on their income and family size. We base patient eligibility for this program on percentages of “Poverty Levels” determined annually by the federal government. Fees are determined either by a minimum fee or a percentage of the full charges. Insured patients may benefit from this plan as non-covered services may also be subject to a fee reduction.

How do I qualify for the Sliding Fee Program?

Like every program, AHS has requirements. We acquire specific information from our patients prior to determining eligibility and establishing a sliding fee level based on the Federal Poverty Guideline Determinations are not made until the required documentation has been provided.

What do I need to bring when applying for the Sliding Fee Program?

In order for you to qualify for our Sliding Fee Scale program, you must fill out an application and provide one (1) of the documents below.

  • Pay stubs (most recent 4 weeks of income) or,
  • Most recent Income Tax Return (attach Schedule C if self-employed) – Expires 04/15 of the following year or,
