How We Charge

The Institute’s mission is to provide affordable health care for all who need it. We accept most private insurance, as well as Medicare and Medicaid. If you do not have insurance, we can help. No one is turned away.

If you have insurance, we will bill your health plan for your care. As of March 31, 2015, we accept the plans listed below. This list can change: please call before you schedule an appointment to make sure we accept your plan.

If you do not have insurance, we will ask you to give us information about your household income. We will use that information to determine the charge for your services. Our sliding-fee scale is available upon request.

We are affiliated with these hospitals: Bronx Lebanon, Health Alliance – Westchester Medical Center Health Network, Ellenville Regional Hospital, Montefiore, Mount Sinai Hospital and Mount Sinai Beth Israel Hospital.

Please note these health insurance companies offer multiple product types of which The Institute for Family Health may not participate with all.  If you see your health plan listed, contact your health center or the plan to determine if your product is considered in network.
