Become a Patient

Welcome to our practice and thank you for choosing Cornerstone Family Healthcare to be your health care provider. We understand that your time is valuable, so in order to expedite your visit, below is a list of items you will be required to provide upon your arrival.

  • Find our Patient Forms here.
  • Please bring the following items to your first visit:
  • Picture identification i.e., passport, driver’s license, green card (For children, please bring their birth certificate)
  • Insurance card(s)
  • Co-payments (We accept most major credit cards and checks for payment)

Most uninsured patients with appropriate documentation can be enrolled in our Sliding Fee Scale Program (see sliding fee scale section below) and will be eligible to pay a lower fee per visit.

Income verification will be required for all uninsured patients. If income verification is not provided, please be prepared to pay $174.00 for the visit. If your health care provider orders lab work, medical treatments, immunizations, PPD’s, EKG, etc., an additional cost will be incurred and you will be required to pay at the time these services are rendered to you.

Sliding Fee Scale
Cornerstone Family Healthcare provides essential medical services regardless of a patient’s ability to pay. If you are uninsured or have a high insurance deductible, a sliding fee discount is offered based upon family/household size and annual income, and calculated according to the most current Federal Poverty Guidelines.

For more information, please ask your Patient Services Representative, see our Enabling Services Department or us at (845) 563-8000. We recommend that you allow at least one hour prior to your appointment to apply for the discount.

Documentation of income for yourself and any individual in your household is required when applying for sliding fee discount. Any of the following documentation is acceptable:

  • last 4 pay stubs, if paid weekly
  • last 2 pay stubs, if paid bi-weekly
  • W2 tax statements
  • Letter of support
  • Unemployment benefit letter

Our Enabling Services Representatives can assist you with qualifying your child for health insurance if he/she is uninsured.

Also, multiple managed care plans have representatives on-site you may speak with about low or no-cost health insurance.
