Sliding Discount Program

Get Payment Assistance with our Sliding Discount Program

Community Health Centers offers a program that reduces the cost of care for uninsured patients or can be applied to insurance deductibles for patients with insurance.

It is our vision to provide essential services regardless of ability to pay. 

Discounts are offered depending upon household income and size. A “Family” is one or more persons living in one dwelling place who are related by blood, marriage, or law. Adults and minor children are considered a family. Relatives over 18 (that are not full-time students) are not eligible to be used as dependents for this application process.

Proof of Income or Inability to Pay

Once qualified, discounts will apply for 3-6 months. To continue receiving a discount you will need to complete a new application and provide current proof of income documentation every nine months.
