Payment Options

Southern Jersey Family Medical Centers participates in many federal and state-funded programs, including those that provide services to the uninsured and to others on a sliding-fee scale, based on an individual’s or family’s ability to pay. Many of these publicly funded programs require that patients register for services and provide information to verify their identification, income and dependents. Based on the information provided, a patient’s eligibility for services and payment level are determined.

 

In addition, the registration information provides the basis for contacting patients and families in case of a medical emergency, abnormal clinical laboratory tests, notification of new services and changes in operation hours.
