Sliding Fee Scale Program

Scenic Rivers Health Services offers financial assistance to medical, dental and behavioral health patients through a program called Sliding Fee Scale.  If you are uninsured or under-insured you may qualify for Sliding Fee Scale.

To Qualify:You must complete the Sliding Fee Scale Application and return it, as well as a verification of your income, to your local Scenic Rivers clinic. The discount provided by the scale is based on current federal income guidelines. After you apply, you will be notified by letter whether you qualify. If you qualify, the letter will inform you what percentage of your cost for services will be discounted. The letter will also list which services are covered by the discount.

You may have insurance or be on Medicare and still qualify for this program.

You must pay your portion of charges not covered by the Sliding Fee Scale or your insurance according to Scenic Rivers’ collection policies. There is also a nominal $10.00 copay which must be paid at the time of each visit.

All applications and attachments are kept confidential.

Please contact our reception staff at any of our medical or dental sites to receive an application for completion, or click here to download an application.
