We understand that it is not always possible for patients to be covered by health insurance, therefore, Family Health Services offers a sliding fee program to assist patients who may not qualify for public benefits and who are not able to afford the full cost of an office visit.
The sliding fee discount is based on family size and total gross income (yourself, spouse or significant other, children under 18, and parents, grandparents and adult children if applicable). Each family unit is determined eligible by comparing their household income to the Federal Poverty Guidelines, which are updated every year.
What does it cover?
- Behavioral Health
- Imaging & Lab
- Nursing Home Visits
- Hospital Visits
- Eyecare Services
How do I apply?
To apply, you MUST provide the following to the front desk receptionist:
- Federal Tax Return and if income has changed, the 3 most current pay stubs
- Social Security statement and pay stubs for child support, alimony, or unemployment (if applicable)
- Unemployment award letter or Employer Termination Letter (if applicable)
