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.
