Sliding Fee Scale (SFS)
Uninsured patients may apply for SFS to receive discounted charges for services. SFS payment is based on total household income and the number of people residing in the household. An application form must be completed at the Health Center and submitted for approval along with proof of household income. Proof of income includes; prior year's tax return, at least 2 pay stubs from current employer, unemployment receipt, disability determination, social security statement, retirement benefits statement, and any other income.
Verification of SFS status is updated annually and as needed. Patients who do not supply proof of income are not eligible for SFS and are responsible for 100% of the charges incurred at the time of visit. There are no exceptions to this requirement.
If qualified, the individual will be required to pay a portion of the bill, ranging from a nominal fee to 100% of the charges at the time of visit, as follows:
For patients not qualifying for a SFS, a prompt payment discount is available when all charges are paid in full at the time of the visit.
How to Pay for Services
Cash, personal checks and credit cards are accepted. If a check is written it must include an imprinted name and address. Postdated checks are not acceptable.
