Welcome to Crescent Community Health Center!

Our team is ready to work with you and deliver respectful and affordable health care. Let’s get started!

Intake Packet

On average, new patient registration takes approximately 20-30 minutes to complete. Want to skip the wait? Complete the new patient registration packet prior to your appointment!

What is included in the packet?

  • Demographic Form – provides information such as name, date of birth, race, and address.
  • Health History Form – health history questionnaire that is utilized by our care teams to provide you with personalized care.  

Financial Assistance & Sliding Fee Scale

What is a sliding fee scale? A sliding fee scale is a discount applied to the cost of your care based on total household size and income. Crescent will attempt to assess all patients for the sliding fee scale discount including those who are insured. In order to be assessed for the sliding fee scale, you must provide one of the following sources of information:

  • Current paystubs (paystubs must show GROSS income) for the past 30 days (2 paystubs if paid bi-weekly, 4 paystubs if paid weekly); for both patient AND spouse, if married.
  • Tax forms (Federal 1040, W2, or 1099); for both patient AND spouse, if married.
  • If you receive Social Security income, unemployment and/or pension monies that are direct deposit, you may provide your bank statement showing 30 days of activity OR the letter from Social Security or unemployment indicating the amount you are paid.
  • Eligibility Notice from the State (Notice of Decision/Action (IA resident), SNAP report (IL resident) or Food Share Report (WI resident).
  • Wage A verification form. This form allows us to partner with Iowa Workforce that shows a person’s income over the previous FOUR quarters. Only patients employed in Iowa and do not receive unemployment are eligible to submit this form.

How often will I receive a statement from Crescent Community Health Center?
If you have a balance, you will receive a statement at least once a month. Statements will continue until payment is made in full or moved to bad debt.

Why did I receive a statement when I have insurance?
You are financially responsible for the charges your insurance plan does not cover. If your insurance doesn’t cover the services provided, you will incur a balance.
