Sliding Fee Discount Program

While we do accept most commercial insurances, Medicaid and Medicare, we also offer payments on a sliding-fee scale. The sliding-fee scale is intended to minimize financial barriers to care for patients whose household income is at or below 200%of the Federal Poverty Guidelines. 

Each year the federal government sets annual household income levels to be used as a guide to determine if a person or family is considered to be living in poverty. Sliding Fee means that costs change according to the patient’s household income, lack of income, or ability to pay.
