Healthy people, healthy environment, thriving communities

Our health clinics are committed to providing quality care for everyone, regardless of their ability to pay. We have a sliding fee scale for people who are uninsured or underinsured, whose incomes are below 200% of the federal poverty level. We consider your family size and your income when using the sliding fee scale. Fees for services will be reduced based on the sliding fee scale at all three health clinics.

To apply for our sliding fee scale, you will need to provide proof of income and family size. Eligibility is extended to all patients, regardless of other medical coverage.

Patients may be insured and still qualify for a sliding fee.
