OneWorld offers convenient ways for patients to pay for our services. We accept cash, checks, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, most forms of insurance, Medicare and Medicaid.
If you are without insurance, we base our charges on a sliding fee scale. We require proof of one month’s worth of income to determine the fees for services rendered.
The sliding fee scale is based on the Federal Poverty Guidelines for a family of four. Fees may vary based on eligibility, family size and gross monthly income.

Transparency in Pricing
To improve patient price transparency, all health providers are now required to provide patients with the cost or charge for services in order for patients to be knowledgeable about charges or costs prior to a visit. OneWorld has included in our web site our costs or charges for many common medical and dental services. For patients that do not have insurance and are able to document their incomes to at or below 200% of poverty. OneWorld uses a sliding fee schedule. Different insurance companies, Medicaid and Medicare pay for services based upon their own cost structure. Insurance plans may not cover the full cost of services. Should you have questions about our fees or sliding fee program, please call 402-734-4110.
Transparencia en Precios
Para mejorar la transparencia de los precios para los pacientes, ahora se requiere que todos los proveedores de salud proporcionen a los pacientes el costo o el cargo por los servicios para que los pacientes estén informados sobre los cargos o costos antes de una cita. OneWorld ha incluido en nuestro sitio web nuestros costos o cargos para muchos servicios médicos y dentales comunes.
Para los pacientes que no tienen seguro médico y pueden documentar sus ingresos al 200% o menos del nivel de pobreza, OneWorld usa un programa de Escala de Precios. Las diferentes compañías de seguros médicos, Medicaid y Medicare pagan por los servicios según su propia estructura de costos. Es posible que los planes de seguro médico no cubran el costo total de los servicios. Si tiene preguntas sobre nuestras tarifas o el programa de Escala de Precios, llame al 402-734-4110.
