What Is the Sliding Scale Program?

The Sliding Scale Program is a healthcare services program allowing Tri-Area Community Health patients to obtain free or low-cost healthcare services. The program is based on a sliding scale, which means that it is based on the income of the family or individual, and is designed to help those who may not be able to afford healthcare services on their own.

Requirements and Qualifications

The Sliding Scale Program is not a one-plan-fits-all and what you qualify for will be determined by your household's federal poverty level. To qualify, your household income must be at or below 200% of the federal poverty level. Patients must be 18 years of age or older and must reside in the United States.

Application Process

The application process for the Sliding Scale Program is simple. You will need to fill out an application and provide proof of income and family size. Once your application is approved, you will be able to receive healthcare services at a discounted rate. Discounts will be available for three, six, or twelve months depending on the financial situation. You will need to reapply before your current application is closed to continue to receive the benefits.
