We recently shared the first video in our series of ten short videos that explain all about North Country HealthCare. The second video highlights something that makes us unique as a community health center – we won’t turn you away based on your ability to pay. Check it out!
North Country HealthCare is a community health center. Community health centers keep communities healthy. We won’t turn you away based on your ability to pay. There are several payment options to get you healthy and on your way. We accept insurance through your employer, or a government program like Medicare or Medicaid. Uninsured? Yeah, we can help you enroll in a plan or a discount program that is right for you.
North Country HealthCare is a federally qualified health center (FQHC) providing comprehensive primary care services to all, including uninsured and underinsured people in 14 distinct communities across the northern half of the state. Community health centers must meet 19 federal criteria in order to receive FQHC designation, including offering primary healthcare to everyone, regardless of a patient’s ability to pay. Community health centers, including North Country HealthCare, are required to offer a sliding fee scale, which allows a patient to pay a nominal fee for care if they are uninsured and are considered low-income.
We also accept a wide variety of commercial, Medicare and Medicaid insurance plans. Below is a list of some of the major insurance plans North Country HealthCare is contracted with. Because healthcare coverage and insurance plans are constantly changing, it is important to check with your insurance provider before scheduling an appointment to confirm your insurance will pay for services at North Country HealthCare.
*We also accept AHCCCS plans for the following counties: Apache, Coconino, Gila, Mohave, Navajo and Yavapai.
If you are uninsured, our Health Benefits Advocates will work with you to see if you are eligible for any available insurance coverage and assist you with enrollment. To learn more about payment options, or to schedule an appointment with one of our Health Benefits Advocates, visit our Insurance & Payment page.
The mission of North Country HealthCare is to provide affordable, accessible, quality primary care in an atmosphere of dignity and respect where the health and well-being of patients and community are promoted through direct services, education, outreach, and advocacy.
