ST. JOSEPH CHARITABLE CARE – We work with private donors, benefactors, Catholic Charities, and different churches in the Raleigh Deanery to provide charitable care for their clients and parishioners. Medical care is provided at low or no cost or “pay what you can”. Some charitable care patients can join the Membership Care Program (MCP) at a reduced membership fee. As a member of the charitable care, they pay $20 at each office visit. Currently, the clinic does not provide free x-rays, labs, or medications, patients are required to pay for these services; however, we can arrange for necessary services through our community partners at the Capital Care Collaborative at special reduced rates and/or low or no cost. For example, a simple chest x-ray costs less than $50, and basic labs and medications cost less than $20. Qualified uninsured patients can receive certain basic laboratory tests, free of charge, at all three Wake County hospital corporations (Duke Raleigh, UNC/Rex Healthcare and WakeMed). They can also receive specialist cares throughout Wake County. Costs to see a specialist doctor is free of charge, based on availability, first comes first serve. However, there is a co-pay that ranges from $10 – $150 per visit. We do not accept walk-in or hand out an application for the charitable care. Our donors/benefactors and staff at churches will identify those in need of medical care – recipients and will inform us of their needs. We will work with them, including receiving them as new patients and appointments.
For more information on how you can take part of the program(s), or offer charitable care for your parishioners/congregations, please call Peter Le (919) 386-6866.
