If You’re uninsured, you may qualify to pay a reduced price for some services and treatments at our health centers. The exact amount you pay depends on your income and family size. This is the “Sliding Scale”.
Once you qualify for the Sliding Scale, you can use it for 12 months. If your income or family size changes during those 12 months, you must let us know.
Example of Sliding Scale Costs:
If your income is between $0 and $11,880 and you live alone, you would qualify for our nominal fee of $36. If it is between $11,880 and $15,800, then you would qualify for a nominal fee of $48, etc.
See our 2016 Annual Income Sliding Scale Information Sheet.
Services not covered by the Sliding Scale:
The items below are not covered by the Sliding Scale, but may be covered by other programs:
- Vasectomy/tubal ligation
- Birth Control
- Services you get from outside hospitals or doctors
How to qualify for the Sliding Scale
To qualify, you must bring in proof of your family’s income. You can bring any of these things to show proof:
- Pay stubs
- Tax forms *Preferred documentation
- Letter from your employer
- Documents showing income from unemployment, SSI, alimony, child support, or other sources
What if I don’t know my income?
If you don’t know your family’s exact income, you can estimate. But if you don’t bring proof of income back to the health center, you will be charged full price.
