Our MISSION is to improve the overall health status of Marion County residents by providing quality primary medical, dental and mental health services to all residents, but in particular to those residents who would not otherwise be able to access these services due to financial limitation and/or lack of health insurance.
Our VISION is to be recognized throughout the community as a provider, employer and medical home of choice, with a stable financial position that supports extensive services and progressive technical capabilities in multiple locations, and brings benchmark quality care to its patients through clinical and administrative expertise and the knowledgeable and informed leadership of its management staff and Board of Directors.

Since this is a sliding fee scale clinic, we have provided the Federal Poverty Guidelines below. Visit the Heart Of Florida 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 legal aid from some offices, they use a sliding fee scale. 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%.
