What else should you know?

Christ Community Health has two locations. Be sure to confirm the correct location for your appointment.
You will be assigned to a specific Care Team that will manage your health care. You may read more about Care Teams and Patient Centered Medical Homes in our Policies
We accept Medicaid, Medicare, and most private insurance plans.
Uninsured or underinsured patients are charged on a sliding fee scale that starts at $25 for an office visit. You must complete our Sliding Fee Scale Application and provide Proof of Income. (Charges are based on total household income and size.)
We perform some bloodwork, labs and tests in-house. These are not included in the cost of your office visit. Your Care Team can answer any questions you have about lab fees.
After your first appointment, please review the Established Patient section for additional information.

Health Insurance Marketplace

Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), you may be eligible for affordable health insurance. If you’re uninsured, health insurance plans may be available at little or no cost to you.  If you do have insurance, you may be eligible for new protections under the ACA.

One of our staff members can help you review your options and enroll through the Health Benefits Exchange. Marketplace options are also available to small business owners and students.

For more information, visit Healthcare.gov, or contact our office at (706) 396-1467 for one-on-one assistance.
