Sliding Fee Scale Information

At Unity Health Care, Inc. our mission is to promote healthier communities through compassion and comprehensive health and human services, regardless of ability to pay. One way we do that is to offer a sliding fee scale to all income eligible patients or under-insured patients based on annual household income and family size.


All Unity patients are eligible to apply for the slide. Determination of the discount, if any, is dependent upon household income and household size in comparison to the current Federal Poverty Guidelines.  The discount may apply to Insurance / Medicare deductibles as well as non-covered services.  The discount does not apply to comprehensive and major dental procedures.
