Fees and Insurance
Family health starts at the Family Health Center and we welcome every person regardless of ability to pay. Additionally, Medicaid is always welcome at the FHC and Medicaid patients are never turned away.
For patients who need assistance, FHC financial counselors are available 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.
