We are a federally funded organization. Clients are expected to pay for services rendered; however, a client will not be denied an office visit because of his/her inability to pay. The Center provides a schedule of discounts to all individuals and families with an annual income at or below 200 percent of the most recent U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Federal Poverty Guidelines. The Center will offer to all eligible patients a sliding fee discount based on income and family size and no other factor. The definition of income and family size will be based on the established current Federal Poverty Guidelines (FPG). For more information please speak with one of our registration representatives to learn about qualifying for these discounts.
The amount of a client’s bill will vary depending upon the type(s) of service(s) he/she receives. Note: The Center will arrange a payment plan should the client not have the money required for services.
For clients who fall at or below 100% federal poverty level income and qualify for the slide fee discount program, a nominal charge will be assessed for the visit.
All moneys collected from clients for outpatient, inpatient, and urgent care services go back into the Center’s operating budget and are used primarily to offset the high costs of medication, laboratory, and X-ray services. Clients’ contributions are essential in maintaining the accessibility and delivery of quality services.
