We've got you covered!

  • Insurance card(s)
  • Money for copay if applicable (we accept cash, check, or any major credit cards)

*Proof of income documents include: prior year tax return, recent pay stub, pensions, veteran’s benefits, retirement, child support/alimony payments, letter of support from the person you are currently staying with, or a recent bank statement. All of these proofs of income must be from the past 30 days or less. Unemployment compensation, a letter with balance on Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT), a social security letter, or a disability letter will also work if it is less than 60 days old. If you have no proof of income, please be prepared to pay $100 if you are an established patient, or $130 for your first visit as a new patient. This payment will be credited against the full charges of the visit, which may be higher than the amount paid on the date of service. Please note that the amount due on the date of service does not include labs, injections, etc. BCHS will collect any unpaid balances after the visit date. 

When to arrive and where to go...

We ask that all patients arrive 15 minutes prior to the appointment time for check-in. We extend a 15 minute grace period to our patients who may be arriving late. After the grace period, BCHS reserves the right to fill the appointment slot with another patient and reschedule your appointment/accomadate you as a walk-in.
