Self-declared patients will be responsible for 100% of their charges until management determines the appropriate category.
Those with incomes at or below 100% of poverty will receive a full 100% discount.

Patients receiving a full discount will not be assessed any fees per visit; except a nominal $30 fee for a routine/preventative visit. Patients will not be denied services due to an inability to pay.
