Free/Sliding Scale Clinics

PRIMARY CARE HEALTH SERVICES (See facility listings below)

Our Sliding Fee Program allows for discounts in fees charged for services provided to you.  Discounts are based on household income and family size.

For medical services, you may qualify to pay only $60, $40, or $10, with in-house lab work and x-rays provided at no additional cost.  Dental bills may be reduced by 33% or 50%.

An individual whose income does not allow for reduction to his/her medical bill will be charged a reduced flat fee of $70 in addition to any lab and x-ray charges if the bill is paid at time of service.

Everyone is eligible to apply for the Sliding Fee program, even those with medical insurance.  Once your eligibility is determined, your sliding fee will be in effect for a one year period.

Prescriptions are not covered under the Sliding Fee program, but completing the Sliding Fee application will help determine eligibility for prescription assistance programs.

Services include pediatric care, adult medical care, women’s health care and podiatry.
