SWGHC provides access to health care for people, who might not otherwise be able to afford it. Health center services are not free. However, to ensure that income or lack of insurance is not a barrier to care, patients who are not covered by public or private insurance are charged on a sliding fee scale according to income. Co-payments are due at the time of the office visit. For patients who qualify for the sliding fee program, the patient's percentage is due at the time of service. All their centers accept Visa, Master Card, Discover, Personal Checks (with identification) and Cash.
Sliding Scale: Patients who wish to participate in the sliding-fee-program are encouraged to ask for a sliding fee application form, which includes verification of income. In order for a patient to qualify for the sliding fee program, the information must be provided at the time of the visit. If the qualifying documentation is not provided, the patient will be responsible for 100% of the cost for services rendered.
Since this is a sliding fee scale clinic, we have provided the Federal Poverty Guidelines below. Visit the Sumter Convenient Care 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%.
