Since this is a sliding fee scale clinic, we have provided the Federal Poverty Guidelines below. Visit the Alamosa Family Medical Center - Valley Wide Health Systems 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|
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%.
