Insurance & Payments

Everyone deserves affordable health care. With or without insurance, you can always come to us for health care.

I don’t have insurance or Medicaid

If you don't have insurance, you may qualify for a state-funded program or a lower fee scale. If you’re worried about cost, ask us about how you can get health care that fits your budget.

Our fees are based on your household income. We’ll never turn you away from the care you need because of your inability to pay.

Support people or escorts are permitted only for patients physically, cognitively or psychiatrically unable to navigate their visits and understand their treatment alone or if their consent for services is required.

We’re unable to provide childcare at our health center. For safety reasons children need to be accompanied by an adult when they’re in the waiting room. Only infants can accompany you to the exam room. Please bring a friend or family member to be with your children if you don’t have childcare at home.

Only infants and toddlers in a car seat or stroller are allowed in the exam room. Please make arrangements for childcare for any other children.
