The Community Access Network provides services to patients regardless of their ability to pay, and offers to all patients the opportunity to apply for the Reduced Fee program to receive affordable healthcare. Ability to pay is based on the patient’s annual household income.
Patients with household income below 100% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL) can apply for free medical visits at Community Access Network. Patients with household income between 101% and 200% FPL can apply for a reduced fee up to $5 for a primary care visit and $10 for a specialty medical visit.
Applying for a reduced fee is fast and easy! To apply for the reduced fee program, call 434-200-3366.
Reduced Fee Program FAQs
It's our goal to make sure each and every patient gets the care they need and deserve. We never want bills or insurance to stand in the way of a patient's health, so we make an effort to provide a reduced appointment fee to individuals who fall below the poverty line.
A reduced fee program with Community Access Network is a program that has been established since our inception to charge patients based on their income. To determine the discount that could be applied to you, Community Access Network will compare your income to the “Poverty Levels” that are annually determined by the federal government.
Reduced fees are determined on a patient-by-patient basis. Generally, patients with a household income that is below 100% of the Federal Poverty Level can apply for free medical visits at Community Access Network.
