Based on your income level, you will owe a minimum sliding fee rate of $20 for Medical and Behavioral Health Services. This minimum sliding fee is due at time of services.
There is a $40 minimum fee in the dental department for some basic services. There are also some services in the dental department which cannot be fee-scaled. These services and costs will be explained to you in a treatment plan prior to receiving the service.
The Sliding Fee fee scale application must be completed along with the required proof of income and family size. The following documents are acceptable proofs of income:
- Most recent income tax return or W-2
- Two most recent pay stubs
- Most recent unemployment check
- Proof of other household income (Social Security, pension, etc.)
- Bank statements showing direct deposits
The documentation should be completed and submitted to one of our MNsure Navigators or Financial Case Aides. Incomplete applications will not be considered for approval.
Eligibility for NorthPoint’s Sliding Fee Discount Program is based on household size and household income. Patients with a documented annual income of 200% or below the Federal Poverty Level (FPL) are eligible for a sliding fee discount on all clinic services. NorthPoint will not turn anyone away based on their inability to pay.
Your total household income must be 200% or less than the Federal Poverty Guidelines to be eligible for the sliding fee scale. Sliding fee eligibility is based on household size and household income.
The sliding fee scale cannot be used instead of your insurance. NorthPoint’s sliding fee scale should be a last resort. If your employer offers insurance, you will not be eligible for NorthPoint’s sliding fee scale.
We will submit bills on verified open workers’ compensation claims. If we cannot verify the claim, your health insurance will be billed.
Depending on the services provided, you may receive one or more bill. In addition to your NorthPoint Clinic bill, you may receive a statement from Hennepin County Medical Center (HCMC).
NorthPoint Health & Wellness has several payment options for our patients and families. These options include, cash, personal checks or credit cards. We accept Visa, MasterCard and Discover.
