About Belknap Commons Health Center
Sliding Scale


Q: I don't have insurance, how much will my appointment/treatment cost?
A: We do offer a Sliding Fee Payment Scale for those without insurance. This Scale is based on income, family size, and other factors. You will need to fill out the necessary paperwork to determine what your fee will be. We will be more than happy to assist you with filling out this paperwork. Until you have been seen for an appointment and we know what services you require, and where you fall on the Sliding Fee Payment Scale, we cannot provide an estimate of much it will cost for your appointment. To become a new patient at Cherry Health, please call our Central Registration Department at 616.965.8308 and they will walk you through the Sliding Fee Scale paperwork.

*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%.
