Most specialty care is provided for copayments ranging from five to fifteen dollars, although some providers may charge higher rates, and some specialty care may not be provided at reduced cost, at the decision of the specialist.
Most lab and diagnostic services ordered by the primary care doctor or referred specialists are covered by the program and available at a local hospital for a five dollar copayment per test.
Most prescription drugs ordered by the primary care physician or referred specialists are covered by the program and available at select DuPage County pharmacies for copayments ranging from ten dollars to fifty dollars. Generic medications covered by Access DuPage should cost no more than ten dollars and may be less expensive if patients frequent pharmacies offering lower cost pharmacy programs.
Since this is a sliding fee scale clinic, we have provided the Federal Poverty Guidelines below. Visit the DuPage Community Clinic-Specialty Care Clinic website listed above to see what the level is needed for free care.
Federal Poverty Guidelines for 2022
|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%.
