Your First Visit
Insurance & Patient Care AR
Welcome to East Arkansas Family Health Center, Inc. We look forward to serving you. To prepare for your first visit, please review the insurance and payment information below, as well as what to bring for eligibility.
East Arkansas Family Health Center, Inc. welcomes all private-pay, fully and partially insured, Medicaid, and Medicare patients. For patients without insurance, we offer a sliding fee scale based on income and family size to ensure that quality, compassionate health care is readily accessible to everyone.
If you have insurance:
If your insurance plan requires you to pay a co-payment, co-insurance, and/or a deductible, it will be necessary to pay at the time of your visit. Payment will also be required for all non-covered services. For your convenience, we accept cash, Visa, MasterCard, and Discover.
If you do not have insurance:
We believe that quality health care should be available to everyone, whether or not you have health insurance. If you are uninsured, you may be eligible for various programs as listed below, if you meet the income requirement:
- ARKids First
- AR Seniors
- SOBRA-Pregnant Women
- Family Planning
Our Medicaid Outstation Worker is available to help you and your family with these programs and other available resources. Help us help you – do not miss out on health coverage you are eligible for.
We maintain an established fee schedule for all medical and dental services provided. The fee schedule is reviewed annually by the EAFHC board of directors to ensure sound financial advantage to our patients, and to ensure that the fees are consistent with community standards.
Sliding Fee Scale:
Our sliding fee scale offers significant discounts to individuals and families who qualify on the basis of income and family size.
