Sliding Fee Scale changes for Dental Services

Posted by

Beginning January 1, 2019, patients will pay more for dental services at KC CARE Health Center.

The impact of our decisions on the patients we serve is important to us. As such, we sought input directly from our patients while exploring these changes. Our Consumer Advisory Council members discussed several options and provided valuable insights incorporated into our plan.

The majority of our patients benefit from the sliding scale fee pricing determined by their household income. KC CARE has concluded an increase to these fees is the best option to continue our ability to provide discounted dental services to all our patients. Please review the following revised sliding scale fees for dental services in 2019.

We understand this adjustment to our sliding scale fee structure may result in questions or concerns, which we are happy to discuss with you. KC CARE offers all patients the services of trained, on-site Financial Counselors. Providing patients with workable payment plans at the lowest cost possible is a top priority. To speak with a Financial Counselor, please call 816-777-2703 .

We are honored to serve you and your family. Thank you for understanding our need to increase costs to ensure we can continue to serve you and so many others in our community. To make your next appointment, please call 816-753-5144.
