Cherry Street Health Services is the largest Federally Qualified Health Center in Michigan.
Cherry Street Health Services accepts Private Insurance, Medicare and Medicaid.
If you are uninsured, a sliding fee scale is available based on income and family size. 
Cherry Street Health Services provides high quality healthcare to all individuals regardless of ability to pay.






Since this is a sliding fee scale clinic, we have provided the Federal Poverty Guidelines below. Visit the Heart of the City 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

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%.
