About Joining Hands Health Center

In order to get more information on this clinic, click on the icons below. You may be required to join for free in order to access full contact information.

Joining Hands Health Center is a volunteer-operated clinic providing low-cost dental, medical, counseling, diabetes education services and referral to free vision care. Services are open to uninsured, very low income adults in the Appalachian counties of Jefferson & Grainger.

There is no charge for any services of the clinic to those who have passed our rigorous financial screening process.

Our services are restricted to those who are uninsured and who otherwise qualify after a rigorous financial screening process.

We are the same volunteer-operated non-profit providing low-cost medical, dental and health education services to uninsured indigent adults in the Appalachian counties of Jefferson and Grainger, Tennessee.

In June of 2012 a rigorous system of financial screening was put into place to make sure that the patients being seen at the clinic qualify for free care. We allow a multiple of the Federal Poverty Guidelines as our benchmark with additional restrictions on total assets.
We are comfortable saying that the volunteers at our clinic are seeing patients who simply have no other alternative and could not afford either insurance or pay for even basic healthcare.

We do ask for a donation from each patient at every visit to help with the expenses.

Donation per appointment: Dental $20 per appointment, Medical $10 per appointment, Bloodwork/Labs $5. All other services for our patients are free.

Patients as a group are our 3rd largest donor.

Since this is a sliding fee scale clinic, we have provided the Federal Poverty Guidelines below. Visit the Joining Hands 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
3 $21,720
4 $26,200
5 $30,680
6 $35,160
7 $39,640
8 $44,120

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 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%.
