how to become a patient

paying for care
HOPES takes most insurance plans, Medicaid, and Medicare. HOPES also cares for uninsured patients. If you don’t have insurance, we use a sliding fee scale which adjusts cost based on what you can afford to pay. Our Intake and Eligibility team meets with all new patients to make sure they can get the care they need.
What to bring to your first appointment
To ensure a smooth transition of services to HOPES, please bring these items to your first appointment:
A list of the medications you are currently taking
If it’s easier, you can bring the bottles in.
From either the hospital, your last emergency room visit, or previous physician.

HOPES does not discriminate in the provision of services to individuals based on their ability to pay, race, color, national origin, age, disability, sex, sexual orientation, gender, religion, or veterans status.
