Sliding-fee scale assistance for low or no-income patients who are uninsured or under-insured.

Family Health Center - Patient Financial Counselors

Our mandate at FHC is to welcome every person through our doors regardless of that person’s ability to pay. We take this mission seriously and also understand the importance of cultivating a person’s ability to contribute to his or her own healthcare in a way that is personally empowering.

If you find yourself in a situation where you are strapped financially, we urge you to not neglect your healthcare. FHC Financial Counselors will work with you to determine whether you qualify for our Sliding Fee Scale, what other resources may be available to you and how to create a payment plan that works within your budget. We can also offer referrals to other programs, help to navigate the Medicaid system and assistance with paperwork & translation as needed.

Your health and well-being is our primary concern. Please ask to speak with a Financial Counselor if you are having difficulty paying your bill, have lost your job, are uninsured or are simply worried about budgeting for your healthcare. Our calm, kind & caring staff is here to help you find solutions for healthy living!

Please note: Medicaid is ALWAYS welcome at FHC. Medicaid patients are never turned away.
