Palliative medicine is the specialty focused on relief of the pain and other symptoms of serious, life-threatening illness. The goal is to improve quality of life for patients and their families. Palliative medicine is appropriate at any point in an illness. It can be provided at the same time as curative treatment.
This Health Center is based on Sliding scale fees which are variable prices for products, services, or taxes based on a customer's ability to pay. Such fees are thereby reduced for those who have lower incomes, or alternatively, less money to spare after their personal expenses, regardless of income
Since this is a sliding fee scale clinic, we have provided the Federal Poverty Guidelines below. Visit the Avera Medical Group Palliative Medicine website listed above to see what the level is needed for free care.
Federal Poverty Guidelines for 2023
|Persons In Family Household||Poverty Guideline Salary per year|
For Households with more than 8 persons, add $4,480 for each additional person.
*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%.
