Sliding Fee Program FAQ'S

How Does AFH Offer a Discount on Services?

AFH is a “Federally Qualified Health Center.” We offer a Sliding Fee Scale Program that reduces fees on services for qualified patients.

What is a Sliding Fee Program?

AFH offers a program that reduces fees charged to uninsured patients based on their income and family size. We base patient eligibility for this program on percentages of “Poverty Levels” determined annually by the federal government. Fees are determined either by a minimum fee or a percentage of the full charges. Insured patients may benefit from this plan as non-covered services may also be subject to a fee reduction.

How do I qualify for the sliding-fee program?

Like every program, AFH has requirements. We acquire specific information from our patients prior to determining eligibility and establishing a sliding fee level based on the Federal Poverty Guideline Determinations are not made until the required documentation has been provided.
