Moab Free Health Clinic Patient Eligibility
While our clinical services are restricted to uninsured and underinsured patients with few or no other healthcare options, we are happy to help anyone find the care they need in Moab with our directory of community health resources. Please see Medical & Health Services for a complete list of our services.
Definition of Uninsured
Uninsured patients are individuals who do not have any form of public or private insurance, including Medicaid, CHIP, PCN, Catastrophic, or High-Deductible insurance.
Definition of Underinsured
Underinsured patients are individuals that have health insurance but are paying a high percentage (usually more than 5-10%) of their annual household income towards medical expenses (premiums, deductibles, prescriptions, bills etc.). In order to determine if you qualify as “underinsured”, Clinic staff will review your current medical expenses and compare them to your annual household income. If you suspect you might be underinsured, drop by during our office hours, and we will help determine your eligibility for MFHC services.
You do not need to be a Moab resident in order to receive our services. The Clinic is happy to direct anyone to the most appropriate healthcare options, whether it is within the Clinic or elsewhere.
Anyone is welcome to come to the Clinic during office hours to pre-enroll and learn about eligibility requirements for clinic services. The enrollment process takes about 30 minutes.
What forms do I need to provide to enroll?
The Moab Free Health Clinic requires self-reported financial information and health insurance status. Specific financial forms are not required to enroll at the MFHC. However, these optional forms are strongly recommended so we can help you apply for future healthcare programs, such as state and federal programs and prescription assistance. Optional forms include: W-2, pay stubs, bank statements, etc.
Appointments and Walk-ins
We take appointments for all clinics until all appointment times are filled. We encourage making an appointment to ensure that you will be seen by a provider. Walk-in patients are welcome, but we cannot guarantee you will see a provider on busy days. Walk-in patients must enroll and qualify for clinic services.
No Show Policy
The MFHC maintains a “3-strikes” No Show Policy (“2-strikes” for massage and physical therapy) to discourage missed appointments that could have been given to someone else in need. After three missed appointments, our staff will send you a letter to inform you that the MFHC will no longer be able to serve you.
- If you need to cancel your appointment, please call at least 24 hours prior to your appointment time.
- Patients arriving 15 minutes late to an appointment will be considered a No Show.
Below are some of our patient forms. If possible, please fill these out before coming to the Clinic. If you are a walk in, these forms will greatly reduce your waiting time. Please see our Patient Policy for more information.
