Sliding Fee Discount

A sliding fee is offered for those who qualify. Based on your family size and income, you may qualify for a discount of 60 to 90 percent of fees charged for medical services, 30 to 50 percent on covered dental services and 25 to 35 percent on laboratory services. Some minimal charges to the patient apply at each visit. This discount applies to almost all services, but there are a few exceptions. Insurance carriers are billed first; then the discount applies to any remaining balance.
