This clinic provides quality health care regardless of ability to pay; for those who can pay, a sliding scale based on family size and income is used to determine the appropriate amount.  They also accept  Medicaid, Medicare, Managed Care Organizations, DC Healthcare Alliance (DC Chartered Health Care Alliance and Unison Alliance), and other private insurance plans.

Since this is a sliding fee scale clinic, we have provided the Federal Poverty Guidelines below. Visit the Southwest Health Center website listed above to see what the level is needed for free care.

Federal Poverty Guidelines for 2021

Persons In Family Household Poverty Guideline Salary per year
1 $12,760
2 $17,240

*Alaska and Hawaii have different rates for HUD federal poverty guidelines.
These numbers above represent 100% of the Federal Poverty Rate. In order to get reduced or free services from some clinics, they use a sliding fee scale based on your income. When they use a sliding fee scale, the 100% rate can be different than 100%. In those cases, using for example a 200% federal poverty level, you will only need double the 100% number listed above to 200%.
