RCMS is a not-for-profit health center providing a full range of healthcare services at its three clinics located in Gualala and Point Arena. Services are designed to meet identified needs of the community services, are integrated with other existing healthcare services and systems, and are evaluated on a regular basis to assure that community health needs are being met.
As a not-for-profit corporation receiving public funds, RCMS provides services to qualifed individuals on a sliding fee scale, as well as to patients with MediCal and Medicare coverage, private insurance and self pay status.
RCMS is a rural health center with a federal charter requiring us to treat every patient, regardless of his or her ability to pay. That's our mission and one we willingly accept. But it is also costly. While government grants, reimbursements from Medicare, MediCal, and private insurance help defray some of our costs, we must rely on financial contributions from individuals and organizations to run our operations and expand programs.
Since this is a sliding fee scale clinic, we have provided the Federal Poverty Guidelines below. Visit the Point Arena website listed above to see what the level is needed for free care.
|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%.
