Sliding Fee:

No one will be refused care based on inability to pay. To ensure that income or lack of insurance is not a barrier to patients who are under 200% of the federal poverty level, each patient’s family size and income will determine their rate based on a sliding fee scale. The minimum fee per visit is $25.00. For those with Medicaid, Medicare, or private insurance, the copay amount for your plan will be due at the time of service.  You may apply for a discount at the Front Desk. After one year, you must reapply.

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost

  • You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services.  
  • You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.
  • If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
  • Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
