What is a sliding fee scale?

Sliding fee scale is based on income. Click here to see the fees for services.

Services Covered:
Medical: The discount is applied to all in-office services at the above locations.
Pharmacy: Samples are provided without charge when available.
Lab & X-Ray: The discount is applied to in-office laboratory and x-ray services. Reference laboratory tests and consulting radiology interpretations are excluded.

A completed application including required documentation of home address, household income, and insurance coverage must be on file and approved by the business office at the clinic before the discount is granted. If the applicant is eligible for Medicaid, a written denial of coverage by Medicaid may also be required, however no patient will be denied services based on refusal to apply for other coverages.
