What’s the National Health Service Corps?
The National Health Service Corps (NHSC) is a federal program that helps bring medical, dental, and mental and behavioral health professionals to communities with limited access to health care, including rural areas. Its members are dedicated to ensuring health care for everyone, preventing disease and illness, and caring for those who might otherwise go without care.

 
Do I Qualify for Sliding Fee Scale Program?
Eligibility is based on a patient’s annual income and family size under the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ annual Federal Poverty Guidelines.

Once program eligibility is assessed, a patient who meets the income guidelines would receive a sliding fee discount based on a sliding fee scale (SFS). The SFS is based on annual updates to the Federal Poverty guidelines.

Those with incomes at or below 100% of poverty will receive a full 100% discount. Those with incomes above 100% of poverty, but at or below 200% of poverty, will be charged according to the sliding fee schedule.

Patients must receive services at one of the SFS approved locations and qualify as low-income (can be uninsured or underinsured patients). A list of FCHC’s SFS approved locations is available at the bottom of this page.


Does your income fall anywhere on the table below? If so, you could qualify for this discount program.
