Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC) are community-based and patient-directed organizations that deliver comprehensive, culturally competent, high-quality primary health care services. Health centers also often integrate access to pharmacy, mental health, substance use disorder, and oral health services in areas where economic, geographic, or cultural barriers limit access to affordable health care services. Health centers deliver care to the Nation’s most vulnerable individuals and families, including people experiencing homelessness, agricultural workers, residents of public housing, and the Nation’s veterans. FQHC’s provide services regardless of patients’ ability to pay and charge for services on a sliding fee scale.
Our Federally Qualified Health Center Sites offer access to quality health care for patients who don’t have insurance or don’t have enough insurance through a sliding fee discount program, with discounts available based on your current household size and income only. The program can cover you for up to 12 months—a new application is required yearly or when your household size and income changes, whichever is sooner.
If you have been approved for our Sliding Fee Discount Program, you are currently a patient at one of our health centers, and you’re still struggling to afford your prescription medications, you might be eligible for our Prescription Assistance Program.
Once you are approved, you’ll be issued an ID Card. This is not an insurance card and it cannot be presented as such outside of the network. Call our Centralized Enrollment Line to see if you qualify at (585) 922-1001 option #3.
