Tensas Community Health Center is a federally qualified health center located at 1115 Levee Road in St. Joseph. While the Tensas Parish Health Unit is located in the same building, we are a separate facility. We have physicians, family nurse practitioners, and a dentist on staff Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m
Since this is a sliding fee scale clinic, we have provided the Federal Poverty Guidelines below. Visit the Tensas Community Health Center 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%.
