Fraklin C. Fetter Healthcare Center on Meeting Street downtown
Staff Reports - Fetter Health Care Network announces during the week of Feb. 6-10 clients with outstanding balances of $300 or more can work out a deal to pay off their bills if they come in for a medical appointment and financial counseling – no questions, no hassles, just come see the doctor. Financial Eligibility Specialist Crystal Jenkins-Gelzer said the goal is to encourage Fetter clients to come in for medical care regardless of outstanding bills.

“It’s Fetter’s mission to provide access to quality healthcare regardless of the ability to pay,” she said. “We are not a free clinic, but we understand the financial circumstances of many of our clients. Outstanding medical bills should not be a roadblock to good health.” She intimated that no matter the amount of the balance, clients’ bills will be considered on an individual basis.

And in addition, Fetter offers more bang for the buck, Jenkins-Gelzer proclaims. As a ‘patient-centered medical home’, Fetter empowers its clients by providing comprehensive services that include enrollment in the SNAP program, Obamacare, Medicaid, VA benefits and even voter registration. The Amnesty Week deal and those services are available to their insured and uninsured clients! And the deal and services are available at each of Fetter’s satellite clinics as well.

This year Fetter celebrates 50 years of healthcare service and continues its mission of delivering timely, comprehensive and quality healthcare services with dignity and respect, said Marketing and Fund Development Coordinator, Marilyn Hemingway.

“This is all a part of our commitment to provide quality healthcare. We’re a community resource and we want to continue to be competitive as we go through renovations to the downtown clinic. We’re enhancing the beauty of our facility so we can give our clients a better healthcare experience,” she said.

To learn more about Amnesty Week, for information or to schedule appointments call (843) 722-4112. To be eligible for the financial amnesty, clients must come to an appointment Feb. 6-10, be prepared to make a minimum $30 payment and attend a follow up appointment within 30 days.
