I have been seeing many posts about not having insurance and looking for somewhere to be seen by a doctor. I teach this for a living (not exactly, but a huge part of what I do) so I figured I’d share:
UMC is my “thing” so here goes my spiel:
Call 915-521-7914 for financial assistance scheduling. You can ask about appointments everywhere. They are at the main hospital, Joe Battle, Ysleta, West, fabens. They may ask you which one you prefer but if they don’t have any there, you can ask about others.
You will need:
Proof of income: check stub, W-2, letter of employment, or if someone supports you, they can just write you a letter.
Proof of address x2: utility bill, ID, lease, letter stating you are staying there
And of course your ID. They’ll also ask how many members in your household.
Once you have your appointment for financial assistance, the clinics can see you. You call 915-790-5700 and ask for scheduling. At your appointment, you tell them you have the financial assistance appointment coming up and they should honor the price or take the amount you can pay at that time and bill you the rest. Once you get the bill, you’ll take it to financial assistance and they can write it off.
