Appointment Policy

Important Appointment Information

  • If You Need to Cancel Your Appointment
    We know that there may be times when you need to cancel or change a visit. You must call us at least 24 hours before the visit to let us know. This way we can give the appointment time to another patient who needs to see their doctor or nurse practitioner.

    If you give us less than the required 24 hours notice, the canceled or missed visit will be marked as a “No Show.” We will send you a letter each time that you have a visit that is marked as a “No Show.” You should call us to reschedule your appointment.

  • If You Miss Three Appointments
    If you have three “No Shows” in any 6-month period, you will be placed on the No Show List. When this happens, you will no longer be able to make appointments until you attend our “Missed Appointment” Class. You also may not be able to get refills. In order to avoid this, please make sure to come to your appointments.

  • Late Policy
    If you are more than 15 minutes late for a visit, it may not be possible for your Provider to see you that day. Your Provider will decide if they can see you, based on their schedule that day. If this happens, we will work with you to schedule another visit.

LCH is here to support you. Research shows that patients who receive regular healthcare live longer and healthier lives. The Missed Appointment Class reviews the benefits of caring for you and caring for your community. The class is offered in English and in Spanish monthly at 6:30pm at the Kennett Square Health Center. For additional information, please contact Community Engagement and Education Manager, Norma Diego, at ndiego@lchservices.org.

    Insurance or no insurance, LCH will take care of you.  We evaluate everyone to determine eligibility for discounted services. Our sliding scale fees are based on your income and family size.  We don't turn anyone away due to inability to pay.

In some cases, the sliding fee discount can also apply to deductibles imposed by insurances. If you wish to apply for discounts, you will need to bring appropriate documentation of household income. You may apply for a discount at the front desk. LCH staff will be glad to discuss our fees with you. Please do not hesitate to inquire about the charges for services received. You will not be denied services due to inability to pay. Please note that certain select nonessential services, like teeth whitening, do not apply.
