What is the Sliding Fee Discount Program?
Carolina Family Health Centers, Inc. offers a Sliding Fee Discount Program to help make our healthcare services affordable. We strive to assure that no patient is denied care due to an inability to pay for our services. Our Sliding Fee Discount Program allows us to “slide” or reduce fees for eligible patients.
Eligibility for the Sliding Fee Discount Program is determined by a patient’s household size and annual income. An application must be completed and proof of income is required. Discounts are applied based on federal poverty income guidelines, updated annually by the federal government.
While fees for eligible patients are reduced, a nominal fee for services will be the patient’s responsibility. Payment is expected at the time of service and flexible payment schedules are available.
Patients with insurance may also be eligible for discounts and are encouraged to apply.
