Free or Fee-Based? Issues to Consider for Georgia’s Charitable Clinics


Mark Cruise
Executive Director
Florida Association of Free and Charitable Clinics


Georgia Charitable Care Network

Program Description

Despite continuing misperceptions that healthcare reform reduces the need for safety net providers, many charitable clinics today actually face increasing demand for their services yet downward pressure on their sources of funding and support. As a result, a number of charitable clinics - most of which have been completely free to patients up until now - are beginning to consider the implementation of patient fees. The purpose of the webinar is to shine a light on this emerging development and to provide practical information and guidance for clinic decision makers.

Learning Objectives

At the end of the presentation, attendees should be familiar with:
- Current National Trends
- Reasons to Consider Charging Fees
- Potential Fee Structures & Implementation Issues
- Sovereign Immunity & Liability Considerations
