This company was formed as a non-profit clinic at the health department with a charge to provide health care to the "under-served" of our community. They recognized that this population (the uninsured, Medicaid, and low-income Medicare) has many special needs, the GFHS program has evolved into a much more comprehensive care provider than the typical family medicine practice. As well as, to traditional primary care (health maintenance, and acute and chronic disease care) provided by physicians and mid-level providers, GFHS also provides behavioral/mental health counseling, pharmacy services, chronic disease education programs (in diabetes, asthma, and weight loss), medication counseling, nutritional counseling, and a medication assistance program, as well as case management programs.
Since this is a sliding fee scale clinic, we have provided the Federal Poverty Guidelines below. Visit the Highland Health Center Gfhs 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%.

I was on the sliding scale at the New Hope facility.
I have no insurance and I was let go from my job on Dec 29th. My unemployment has not started yet so I have no funds. The last check I received was put towards bills and food.
