In those cases, using for example a 200% federal poverty level, you will only need double the 100% number listed above to 200%.

Date AddedCostTypeDescription
Aug 13, 2021 $0  Charged Sliding ScaleI have been a patient at LVIM for over two years now They may we'll have saved my life I contracted Hep C virus 35 years ago and I haven't had the income or the insurance to cover the cost of treatment, which I believe to cost more than $80,000. LVIM provided this treatment to me for free Last blood test confirmed zero viral load in my blood. I have received eye exams free glasses free dental work free prescription medications, free stop smoking aids and a free breathing treatment machine. They also provide me with physical therapy. I have found the doctors. ARNPs, nurses and entire staff of volunteers to be extraordinarily kind and empathetic. In particular doctor Robert Chapman's knowledge and bedside manner compares to none. I have never felt embarrassed or ashamed by anyone working in the clinic regarding my low income status. Everyone there has treating me with the utmost respect and compassion. There are procedures and hospitalization that they do not have the grant money to support however or whenever it's possible they have resources they can send you referrals for. I am eternally grateful for the care I have been given through these wonderful caring volunteers. Honestly they set the bar for compassionate health Care. I give them the highest recommendation possible. Thank you LVIM! ??

Admin on Aug 13, 2021

This clinic most likely saved my life. I was diagnosed with hepatitis c 35 years ago and could not afford the cost of treatment on average of $80,000 and although I have always been employed I was not offered help insurance by my employer. To my knowledge all of the staff are volunteers however that doesn't mean that they skimp on the their services, quite the contrary they have been most helpful with any and all of my health issues including vision and dental. I have always been treated with respect and compassion and was never made to feel Shane or embarrassment due to my financial status. I have been blessed with a wonderful doctor, Dr Robert Chapman sets the bar for how health providers should treat their patients. He has a wealth of experience and knowledge and yet speaks to you as though you are on the same level. He doesn't talk down to you as many doctors do. He is compassionate, a great listener and always looks for solutions or options that can improve your particular health issues. I give lvim my highest recommendation and I'm also eternally grateful for the healthcare that's been provided to me. Thank you LVIM from the bottom of my ??.

I have been to this clinic.I needed medical care. This clinic was completely free. The staff was friendly. I waited less than 30 minutes It has good intentions but lacks any true care. You can get simple things treated with in reason there but most other things all they can do is advise. If you have a serious illness or health issue that goes beyond the free clinics limited abilities you are pretty much out of luck. Do not expect to get any comprehensive treatment if you have longing issues or something like chronic problems. Honestly you are wasting your time if you expect more then just antibiotics and a thump on the chest along with a stethoscope this is not the place. Also to note there are hundreds of doctors living in Polk county and they manage to get a mere handful to work at LVIM.
