This clinic's doctors and nurses are all volunteers who treat uninsured, low-income patients in need of non-emergency medical care, and the visit is free.
This clinic's patients are seen at Shepherd's Hope health centers on a first-come, first-served basis, and some patients have a return visit. Unfortunately, this clinic's doctors and nurses cannot treat every condition and they are not set-up to be your regular source of medical care.
If a patient at this clinic has a chronic diseases and conditions that require ongoing care will be referred to other clinics in the community for help.
This clinic's partners with organizations including local hospitals to provide most diagnostic laboratory and radiology services at no charge. Some of this clinic's patients have some tests and procedures that are not covered, and in those cases, patients will be responsible for making their own financial arrangements for charges resulting from these uncovered procedures.
If necessary, no-cost prescription medications are given out at the clinic if they have them. Otherwise, their licensed health care providers will write a prescription, and the patient will be responsible for the cost, but they make every effort to prescribe low cost medications, if possible for the patients at their clinic.

Since this is a sliding fee scale clinic, we have provided the Federal Poverty Guidelines below. Visit the Tazkiah Shepherd's Hope 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
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%.
