How We Charge

The Institute’s mission is to provide affordable health care for all who need it. We accept Medicaid, Medicare, and most insurance plans. If you do not have health insurance, we can help. Ask us about how to apply for our sliding-fee discount program. You may be eligible based only on income and family size. No one is turned away.

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

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 plan options, such as Medicaid, Medicare, HMO, Exchange and more, 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.
