How are these services
StarCare Specialty Health System accepts Medicare, Medicaid, CHIP and
most forms of private health insurance. For persons who are not
eligible for health coverage, fees are assessed on the basis of proof
of the individual's (or in some cases the family's) complete income,
with no one denied services due to an inability to pay.
