Do I need to show proof of income when I visit the 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.
