Payment Options

Insurance Plans We Accept

WWFHC accepts all Medicaid plans, Medicare Part B, Healthy Michigan Plan and most other insurance plans for medical and dental services. Call us to see if we take your plan.

You can pay us with cash, a check or use your credit/debit card. We do expect payment at the time of service if you have a co-pay on your insurance.

If you don’t have insurance, we will charge you a co-pay that is based on your income.  That co-pay needs to be paid when you come in for service. Our fees can be quite reasonable for all services.   Call us and find out what kinds of proof of income you need to bring in so that we can tell you what the cost will be.

We can also help you apply for health insurance if you qualify for Medicaid or Healthy Michigan Plan.

Sliding Fee Scale for People Without Health Insurance

All services at WWFHC are open to anyone with and without health insurance. If you don’t have insurance, we can help you apply for Medicaid or the Healthy Michigan Plan.

If you don’t have insurance, can’t get it, or have insurance coverage with a high deductible, we have a sliding fee scale. You’ll need to bring in proof of your income (and your household income) and then we can calculate what your co-pay is for the cost of the visit. We get federal grants that cover part of the costs of a visit after you pay your share. Care at WWFHC is very affordable, and is much less expensive than doctor or dentist offices. We are not a free clinic, but you will be pleasantly surprised at how affordable we are.

Proof of income can be from tax returns, bank statements showing deposits of unemployment benefits or pay check stubs.

If there is a co-pay from your insurance plan, we will need to charge you that amount.

If you have Medicaid or the Healthy Michigan Plan,  there are no co-pays at  WWFHC.

If you have a co-pay on your plan, or are uninsured, you can pay us with cash, a check or use your credit/debit card. We do need payment at the time of service for co-pays.

Good Faith Estimate

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost

Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.

  • You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.
  • Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.
  • If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
  • Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
