Insurance & Coverage

We are accepting new clients!

All services are provided regardless of insurance or ability to pay.
**No one will be sent to collections for not paying a bill**

Uninsured

Lyon-Martin will never turn any client away for lack of ability to pay. We do not send anyone to collections for not paying a bill. Clients without insurance will be asked to apply for our sliding scale, which allows for lower-income clients to be billed smaller flat fees based on income. If you do not have any income documentation, you can self-attest to your income.

We can enroll clients who are uninsured into coverage programs such as Healthy San Francisco, Family Planning Access Care and Treatment (FPACT) and/or Every Woman Counts (EWC) to help pay for the cost of services at our clinic and for some referrals for specialty care. 

Medicare & Medi-Cal

We are in-network with:

  • Medicare
  • Medicare/Medi-Cal
  • Medi-Cal (fee for service, regular or “straight” Medi-Cal)
  • Medi-Cal Managed Care Plans
    • San Francisco Health Plan Medi-Cal
    • Anthem Blue Cross Medi-Cal

We also accept, but are out-of-network with, any out of county Medi-Cal plans such as

  • Health Plan of San Mateo Medi-Cal
  • Health Plan of San Joaquin Medi-Cal
  • Partnership Health Plan Medi-Cal
  • Alameda Alliance Medi-Cal
  • Contra Costa Health Plan Medi-Cal
  • California Health & Wellness Medi-Cal
  • Molina Healthcare Medi-Cal
  • Inland Empire Medi-Cal
  • LA Care Medi-Cal

and more; however, referrals to specialists may be a bit more difficult to navigate with out of county plans since we are technically out of network. If you are able to obtain insurance approval to come to us, or obtain “special member’s status”, we can make referrals more easily.

Commercial PPO Plans

We accept, but are out-of-network with private, commercial PPO plans. This means your insurance would pay us at the out-of-network rate rather than the in-network rate. Any deductible or co-pay you are unable to pay for services received at our clinic can be paid at a sliding scale rate if you are eligible based on income. Again, we never turn anyone away for lack of funds and will never send anyone to collections for not paying a bill for our services.

Commercial EPO & HMO Plans

We are not in-network with private, commercial EPO or HMO plans; however you can still obtain care with us at the out-of-network rate. Any deductible or co-pay you are unable to pay for services received at our clinic can be paid at a sliding scale rate if you are eligible based on income. Again, we never turn anyone away for lack of funds and will never send anyone to collections for not paying a bill for our services.

It is important to note, however, that obtaining care from an out-of-network clinic like ours with an EPO or HMO plan can make it difficult or impossible for us to refer you to specialists that your insurance will cover and sometimes difficult or impossible for us to prescribe medications to you that your insurance will cover. Many EPOs and HMOs only accept referrals or prescriptions from in-network primary care clinics, like Kaiser. Check with your insurance company first to see if our referrals and prescriptions would be covered.
