If you are uninsured or have limited insurance benefits, we offer discounts (sliding fees) for services based on household size and income if eligible. Health Center programs assure that no patient will be denied or unable to access health care services due to an individual's inability to pay for services and assure that any fees or payments required by the center will be reduced to enable the center to fulfill this goal.
