What is the Fee Discount Program?
The Health Center provides discounts on services to patients who are eligible for our Fee Discount Program. The fee discount can help you pay for costs not covered by your insurance.
What are the Income Guidelines?
You may be eligible if your income falls below these guidelines, EVEN IF YOU HAVE INSURANCE!
