Uninsured or Underinsured? Apply for the Adjustable Payment Plan!
The Adjustable Payment Plan (APP) is available to any patient utilizing our family of clinics. Patients that are uninsured, underinsured, and/or have been denied health insurance and whose income is at or below the 200% of the current Federal Poverty Guidelines may qualify for this program. Eligibility for this plan is based on gross family income (all working members within the household) and household size (all members in the family).
“You can see a medical provider and receive healthcare services at a reduced cost (based on your household’s income and size).”
What to expect?
What is household income?
Income includes any of the following for each member of the household: earnings, unemployment compensation, workers’ compensation, Social Security, Supplemental Security Income, public assistance, veterans’ payment, survivor benefits, pension or retirement income, interest, dividends, rents, royalties, income from estates, trusts, educational assistance, alimony, child support, assistance from outside the household, and other miscellaneous sources. Noncash benefits (such as food stamps and housing subsidies) do not count.
What is family size?
Family is defined as: a group of two people or more (one of whom is the householder) related by birth, marriage, or adoption and residing together; all such people (including related subfamily members) are considered as members of one family.
A Family is further defined as anyone receiving more than 50% of their support from a head of household, whether living within the same household or not. Students must produce income proof from family members providing more than 50% of their support, and grants for attending school.

Using the Adjustable Payment Plan
The Adjustable Payment Plan will reduce your patient financial responsibility if you qualify for the program. For example, the service you receive during an appointment could be valued at $500 but your patient responsibility may be minimized. For care that is valued at $500, you could potentially pay $35, $50, etc. (patient payment will vary depending on family size and income).
You can apply during regular business hours at any of our health centers. See our health center locations.
Once you apply, our staff will let you know if you qualify for this Program and the adjustment in payments you will receive to your care. Your adjustment is based on two factors:
(1) the number of people in your household
(2) your household gross income.
The Federal Poverty Guidelines are issued each year in the Federal Register by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). They are used to determine financial eligibility for many federal programs.
Please bring proof of:
(1) Your Gross Household Income: current 2 pay stubs, SSI, Recent Taxes, etc. for every member of your household.
(2) Your Photo ID
If you are having issues with demonstrating proof, please call your local health center and ask to talk to a Registration Specialist.
