For patients who are new to LSCC, the first visit includes an income screening process that determines whether or not you or your family members are eligible for public assistance programs such as Medicaid, CHIP, etc. If you are uninsured and are not eligible for public assistance, the income screening also determines your fee for services based on a sliding fee scale according to Federal Poverty Level guidelines.
For your first appointment, please bring:
- A driver’s license or photo ID
- Your insurance card, if applicable (Medicaid, MAP, CHIP, other)
- IF UNINSURED: a recent pay stub or other proof of income
- IF UNINSURED: proof of address (such as a utility bill)
As a parent of eight children, ages 5 to 19, I had a difficult time finding dental care for my family before I learned about Lone Star Circle of Care. Before the GCC Dental Clinic opened, I couldn’t find a dentist in the area that would accept Medicaid for my adopted children. We often had to drive long distances to get the care they needed. But since we found Lone Star Circle of Care about three years ago, my family has had regular dental care. The staff at the clinic is very friendly, and they make it easy by scheduling the next appointment well in advance. The providers are very kind, and they do a great job of making the kids feel comfortable. It’s a wonderful place, and I would recommend it to anyone I know.
