Sliding Fee Discount Program

What is a Sliding Fee Discount Program?

The Sliding Fee Discount Program allows us to reduce or “slide” the fees for the care (Medical, Behavioral Health, and Dentistry) you or your family receive at United Family Medicine. Sliding scale fees, access for all (video, 13 sec)

If your income is low, you can receive the quality health care you need at our clinic. We can help you with our Sliding Fee Discount program.

The Sliding Fee Discount Program is available to all patients of United Family Medicine who qualify for the program. To see if you qualify, we will consider the size of your family and your income. We will then determine your discount based on a discount schedule of federal poverty income guidelines. To view the discounts and federal poverty guidelines, please click this link.
