We never refuse emergency services to anyone based on ability to pay. We offer a wide range of programs which we encourage you to use:

Sliding Fee Schedule: A reduction of fees based on family size and income. We use income guidelines established by the Federal Government that are updated yearly to determine the amount of reduction to which you may be entitled. The application process is simple and quick, and, once a discount rate has been established, it is applied to all physician fees in the Health Clinic offices. Please dial ext. 189 for more information.

Presumptive Eligibility: we can determine your eligibility for medical assistance coverage if you are pregnant and/or have small children. For more information, please call extension 247.

If you have any questions on the above programs, please contact our Social Services Department at extension 247.
